New Hampshire Expands Covid Vaccine Eligibility To Anyone Ages 16+


CONCORD, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — In New Hampshire, anyone age 16 and up can now get vaccinated for Covid-19.

The Granite State moved quickly in it's vaccine rollout --- after all residents ages 30 and older became eligible just this past Monday.

For people who are 16 and 17 -- they must bring a parent or legal guardian with them when they go to their vaccine appointment. Residents under the age of 18 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine, as it is the only candidate to receive approval for younger groups so far.

If you are a New Hampshire resident who would like to sign up for a vaccine, you can do so on the state's VINI registration website.

Meantime in Massachusetts, the state will open up vaccine eligibility to people who are 55 and older on Monday, along with people who have one or more high risk medical condition, like asthma or diabetes.

The rest of the Commonwealth will be able to sign up for the shot starting on April 19th on the state's vaccine registration website.
