Update: We contacted DHHS Wednesday to learn why the vaccination site is being moved to Newport. We received the following explanation:
“Our goal has always been to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible.
“Moving indoors is part of an on-going effort across the state to improve efficiencies and throughput at state-managed vaccination sites. As with other sites that have moved indoors, including Concord, West Lebanon, Salem and Newington, throughput is increased at the indoor sites, especially on days with inclement weather.
“All indoor sites have a curbside option in case a vaccine recipient has mobility concerns. Wheelchairs are also available at all indoor sites and staff will be happy to assist.”
Effective Thursday, April 8, 2021, the Claremont vaccination clinic is relocating to Newport in the former Dollar Store building.
Shaws Plaza – Former Dollar Store
62 John Stark Highway
All appointments at the Claremont site will be honored at the Newport location for the same date and time currently scheduled. Vaccine recipients do not need to change their appointments in VINI.
Email and text message notifications will go out to individuals with scheduled appointments at the Claremont site starting on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
Individuals with questions or looking to reschedule their appointment are encouraged to do so online at vaccines.nh.gov or by calling 2-1-1. If you live near a bordering state or having trouble contacting the NH COVID Call Center, please call (603) 271-5980. COVID-specific call-takers are available from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, 7 days a week.
