Wow, the vaccine is really here.  Are you ready?  According to newsbreak.com, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services has made some changes to the registration process for the vaccines.  Under Phase 1b, those residents 65 and older and those with certain underlying conditions can sign up to get the vaccination. Residents 65 and older should register at one of the state's clinics by calling 2-1-1 or going to the state vaccination website at https://vaccines.nh,gov.

Residents with underlying health conditions that leave them more vulnerable to COVID-19 will have a different path.  They are encouraged to reach out to their healthcare provider to assist them in getting the vaccine. Since the vaccine supply is limited, the Division of Public Health is advising that health care providers give the vaccine to those 75 and older first, then 65 and an older next, and that they should consider those with numerous underlying health risks first before those that have fewer.

 

According to the newsbreak.com article, “The seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in New Hampshire has decreased over the past two weeks, going from 808 new cases per day on Jan. 4 to 794 new cases per day on Monday.”  It’s good news to see a decrease and hopefully, those numbers will continue to decline.  Once we start getting people vaccinated those numbers will go down significantly.  Talk to your health care provider if you have any questions about the vaccination.  Follow the guidelines from the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services should you have any concerns.  Let’s be safe! I am so ready to go to a bar and have a drink with some friends.
