Vermonters can book vaccine appointments in New Hampshire starting Monday (April 14, 1:17 pm)

New Hampshire plans to open vaccine eligibility to any adults — regardless of residency — starting Monday. That means Vermonters 16 and older will be able to sign up for shots across the border.

Like Vermont, New Hampshire requires all patients to book appointments in advance. Unlike in Vermont, all appointments — including those at pharmacy locations — can be booked through the state’s vaccination website. New Hampshire’s 2-1-1 system is booking appointments by phone; those calling from Vermont should dial 866-444-4211.

New Hampshire Public Radio maintains a complete list of vaccine clinic locations.

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu announced the change last Thursday. Beth Daly, the head of the state’s Bureau of Infectious Disease Control, said at the time that over 60% of the eligible population had either received a dose or signed up for an appointment.

Sununu said the increased vaccine supply, and the pace of in-state signups so far, spurred them to make the change. 

“We’re going to have a lot of vaccine here,” Sununu said. “So we want to get it out to anyone who might actually be here in the state.”
