“The Town of Bristol is committed to helping residents get the COVID-19 vaccine in the quickest, most efficient manner,” said Bristol Town Administrator Steven Contente. “Bristol will continue to vaccinate the residents on our 75+ waitlist and work with the State as they consolidate the registration process.”

Bristol residents age 75+ that pre-registered for the vaccine through the Bristol-Run Vaccination Site will remain on the town’s waitlist. As vaccine doses become available, a town representative will contact residents on the town waitlist to schedule their first vaccination appointment.
