CONCORD – On Friday, April 2nd, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth), Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene), Senator Sue Prentiss (D-West Lebanon), and Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy (D-Manchester) sent a letter to Governor Sununu requesting that he reconsider vaccine allocations for non-resident college students.


On Monday, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth), Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene), Senator Sue Prentiss (D-West Lebanon), and Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy (D-Manchester) issued the following statement:


“College students spend the majority of their year, and in many cases their entire year in New Hampshire studying, working, and contributing to the local economy. By excluding certain students from the state’s vaccination plan and encouraging them to cross state borders multiple times to receive a vaccination, we are prolonging the effects of the virus here in New Hampshire and delaying our return to normal. We strongly encourage the Governor to reconsider his position so that all college students can receive their vaccines in their New Hampshire communities. This is about all of us working together to keep our communities safe and healthy.”
