PLYMOUTH, NH – On Saturday March 20th, the NH Public Health Network hosted its’ 2nd COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Mid-State Health Center’s Boulder Point location in Plymouth, NH. This one-day clinic provided over 600 community members who were eligible under Phase 1A and 1B with their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine following a prior clinic held at Mid-State earlier in February.
Mid-State’s Medical Director, Dr. David Fagan states, “Mid-State partnered with the New Hampshire Public Health Network to vaccinate 611 community members in one day. Mid-State’s team mobilized to contact over 3,000 people from lists of those eligible, helped recruit vaccinators, prepared lunches and baked goods for workers, and set up traffic cones and Wi-Fi in its parking lot, all in its efforts to help stop the spread of COVID. Mid-State will continue to try to obtain vaccine for the many who still need to be protected.”
Building on this success, starting in mid-April Mid-State Health Center will serve as one of the region’s “fixed sites” allowing the community to access the state supply of vaccine. Those eligible for the vaccine will register through the state VINI system and have the option to choose Mid-State as their vaccination site. All of the vaccine currently available at Mid-State is part of the State of New Hampshire’s vaccination program. Mid-State hopes to receive its own supply of the COVID-19 vaccine for its patients in the very near future and begin offering it similar to the way patients access other common vaccines. For now, anyone in the community, including Mid-State patients who are eligible for the vaccine are encouraged to register at vaccines.nh.gov in the VINI system and choose Mid-State as their site for vaccine when available.
Mid-State Health Center is dedicated to the health of the community and has continued to be there for patients and the community by remaining open and doing their part to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In addition to their vaccination efforts, Mid-State provides a variety of resources to help anyone in need through the pandemic. Whether you’re in need of behavioral health services to handle the stress of COVID-19, or food resources to make it through quarantine, Mid-State is here for you.
