AGE 50+ VACCINATION APPOINTMENT WEBSITE NOW OPEN -- The State of New Hampshire has started scheduling vaccination appointments for individuals within Phase 2B, which includes:
- NH residents age 50 and over
- NH residents who are medically vulnerable and at significant risk – including family caregivers for those under 16
- NH residents with developmental disabilities who receive services in a congregate residential setting, as well as staff in those settings
- Corrections officers and staff
- Populations who experience health disparities
If you are over 50 in the State of New Hampshire, as of March 22, 2021, you can go here: COVID-19 Vaccine Schedule for NH Residents | NH Vaccine Strategy and follow the directions to sign up.
Please note: The State of New Hampshire is handling all vaccine appointing through its website (link above) and the VINI system. Do not use the VAMS website to attempt to register for a vaccine in NH.
For those unable to schedule an appointment online, the 2-1-1 Hotline remains available, 7 days a week, 6 am to 10 pm. That call center is staffed by 300+ people, but the wait times can be 45 minutes or more.
If you do not have a cell phone and you choose register online, please note that the [cell phone] field is marked as required. You should put your landline phone number in this field. We have confirmed this through 2-1-1.
- Individuals do not need one of the documents listed below to register, but will need to bring at least one of the following documents when they arrive to get their vaccine:
- Valid, unexpired NH Driver license or Non-Driver ID card.
- A payroll check, payroll document, or employment contract showing individual’s legal New Hampshire address, dated within the last 60 days
- A government issued payment (ie. social security), showing individual’s legal New Hampshire address, dated within the last 60 days.
Please NOTE: you MUST have a valid email to register online.
Your Primary Care Physician is generally the person who determines your eligibility (outside of age related eligibility) and forwards that on to the State. If you have questions, you should check in with your Primary Care Physician.
If you have multiple conditions/physicians, you may receive emails from those offices informing you that you have been designated as eligible. In one case, there were emails from four separate physician offices letting the patient know that the offices had submitted paperwork regarding their eligibility.
The State has provided resources that may be found here.
