NH Expands Eligibility, Additional 35,000+ Granite Staters Schedule Appointments
Concord, NH – Today, over 35,000 Granite Staters scheduled an appointment for their COVID-19 vaccine as of 3:00 PM.
“Today’s expansion of eligibility to individuals 30 and older was another massive success,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “As we designed VINI, creating an easy-to-use system that allows Granite Staters to complete the registration and scheduling process as quickly as possible was our focus, and on average, users completed the process in well under 15 minutes. Today was another win for New Hampshire.”
Users did not experience wait times during today’s release.
The state estimates that approximately 25,000 individuals in the 30-39 year old age bracket have already received at least their first dose as part of earlier phases.
Today’s expansion of eligibility follows Monday’s successful rollout to New Hampshire residents 40+. As of 3:00 PM today, over 51,000 appointments had been scheduled by those 40+.
Eligibility will expand to all New Hampshire residents 16+ on Friday, April 2.
Due to FDA emergency use authorization requirements, 16 and 17 year old vaccine recipients are only allowed to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Pfizer is available at all state-managed fixed sites. A parent or guardian must be present at the time of vaccination.
The State continues to urge those who register to use only one device during the registration process. Individuals who attempt to sign on with multiple devices risk having longer wait times and will contribute to a slower registration process.
