NH’s VINI Rolled Out with a Hiccup but Should Be Smooth Sailing to Get Your Vaccine
New Hampshire has its own vaccination website program and it launched with a bit of a hiccup as users swamped the website on the first day that the vaccination program is open to those 50 and older according to WMUR.com. Just a few growing pains on the new website. Gov. Chris Sununu issued a statement per reporting by WMUR.com “An unprecedented volume of web traffic was experienced this morning, a good sign that Granite Staters are ready and eager to receive their vaccine, which did cause some to experience delays.”
I don’t know about you, but I am all booked for my vaccine and I am thrilled that I can get it at my local Walgreens in Rochester. It’s just a short walk from my apartment. I am super glad it's convenient after seeing some other states with long lines of people waiting to get their shot. If you still encounter problems with VINI you can always reach out to 211 for assistance in scheduling the vaccine. It’s a great sign that the website crashed, which means a lot of New Hampshire residents are eager to get vaccinated.
The sooner everyone gets vaccinated the sooner we will reach herd immunity and we can all get back to business as usual and do fun stuff like travel again, dine out without the worry and go to a concert. It appears that the troubles with the new VINI online scheduling system were short-lived and that the site is back up and running. I suppose a lot of those in Phase 2B jumped on at the same time. Keep trying!
