N.H. Gov Says All Adults Eligible for COVID Vaccine By Next Week

CONCORD, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu announced the state would open up vaccine eligibility to all residents ages 16-plus next week.

Gov. Sununu made the announcement in a COVID-19 briefing to the press.

The state will open up its vaccine eligibility progressively, by age range, on three days next week. Residents aged 40-49 will become eligible to schedule an appointment on Monday, March 29, followed by ages 30-39 on Wednesday the 31, and everyone ages 16-plus on Friday, April 2.

The governor said around 150,000 new residents will become eligible for a vaccine on each of the three days.

Some users on social media reported service outages Monday morning as the state's vaccination appointment website, Vaccine and Immunization Network Interface (VINI), opened to people aged 50-plus. The problems were mostly solved by Monday afternoon. VINI launched about a week ago, on March 17.

Gov. Sununu said he was "very very confident" that the website would not crash amid a surge of newly eligible residents making appointments.

The governor said he would be signing up for an appointment himself on Monday.
