CONCORD – Today, following pushes from college students, town officials, universities, and elected officials, Governor Sununu announced that beginning on April 19, any individual over the age of 16 would be able to register for a COVID-19 vaccine in New Hampshire.
After the announcement, the Senate Democratic caucus issued the following statement:
“We are happy to hear that the Governor has reversed his previous position barring out-of-state college and boarding students from registering for the COVID-19 vaccine in their New Hampshire communities. We would like to thank the students, town officials, universities, and elected officials for raising their voices and alerting the public, and the Governor, to the dangers of the restrictions. Our college and boarding students are valued members of our communities and it is up to all of us to work together to protect public health and safety - opening up vaccine eligibility is a critical next step towards our long term recovery.”
