NH Mobile Vaccine Van Launches; Provides COVID-19 Vaccines In New Hampshire
Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), in partnership with ConvenientMD, announces the launch of the NH Mobile Vaccine Van, a new initiative to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines in New Hampshire. The NH Mobile Vaccine Van is available upon request for groups of all sizes, and will provide free vaccination clinics in communities across the state.
The van will begin operation on Thursday, July 15, and run throughout the summer. It is available to organizations, such as businesses, religious organizations, and community groups, as well as community events such as festivals, neighborhood block parties and farmers markets. There is no cost to entities hosting a vaccine clinic conducted by the NH Mobile Vaccine Van.
“We are working with our community partners to identify potential locations to offer the COVID-19 vaccines in every corner of the state,” said Tricia Tilley, Director of the DHHS Division of Public Health Services. “We are excited to partner with ConvenientMD to truly make vaccinations as convenient as possible. The mobile vaccine van can go anywhere people live and work, meeting people where they are. No matter where you live, what language you speak, or what hours you work, the Mobile Vaccine Van makes it easy to get a vaccine that protects you, your family, and your community.”
The mobile vaccine van will offer vaccinations at two upcoming clinics at the following locations:
• Thursday, July 15, from 8 am to 3 pm, at the Roundabout Diner in Portsmouth
• Saturday, July 18, from 8:30 am to 11:30 am at the Sunapee Farmers Market in Sunapee
To request the van, go to vaccines.nh.gov and click on the van icon in the upper right corner.
All three FDA authorized vaccines will be available (Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson). Translation services will also be available.
