The State of New Hampshire has developed a three-phase rollout for the COVID-19 vaccine. Here are the latest updates:
In last week’s update, we shared that the next group of New Hampshire residents who can be vaccinated (Phase 1B) include:
1) Those 65 years and older
2) Those under 65 and have 2 or more underlying medical conditions listed below (adapted from CDC)
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and other high-risk pulmonary disease
- Down Syndrome
- Heart Conditions, such as heart failure or coronary artery disease
- Immunocompromised states
- Obesity (body mass index of 30 kg/m or higher)
- Sickle cell disease
- Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
A network of State-run Vaccination Clinics are currently being rolled-out as vaccination plans across NH quickly develop. These include 13 current locations, listed below. We encourage people to sign up for the earliest available appointment at one of the State-run clinic locations:
- Keene (Greater Monadnock)
- Concord (Capital Area)
- Nashua (Greater Nashua)
- Claremont (Sullivan)
- Exeter (Seacoast)
- Hooksett (Greater Manchester)
- Laconia (Winnipesaukee)
- Tamworth (Carroll County)
- Littleton (North Country)
- Londonderry (South Central)
- Plymouth (Central NH)
- Rochester (Strafford County)
Here at MCH, we are coordinating closely with the State and hope to announce a series of future clinic dates at MCH, in the near future. We will communicate those details to you as soon as we have that confirmation.
Please note: All vaccinations at State-run Clinics require prior registration. No walk-in vaccinations are allowed. No exceptions.
What should you do next?
If you are a New Hampshire resident 65 years of age or older:
Visit the State's website beginning at 8:00 am this Friday, January 22 to schedule your vaccination.
If you are New Hampshire resident age 16-64 with 2 or more of the high risk health conditions above, and ARE a patient of MCH:
You do not need to call your provider at this time. We have submitted your information to the State and you will be contacted directly by the State within 5-7 days, with an invitation to schedule your appointment.
If you are New Hampshire resident age 16-64 with 2 or more of the high risk health conditions above, and ARE NOT patient of MCH:
You may also be vaccinated at the State-run vaccination sites, with confirmation by your physician that you have 2 or more high-risk health conditions.
Appointments to be vaccinated at state-run vaccination sites will begin January 26 and will depend on the availability of the vaccine as it is distributed to the State.
