When can you get your vaccine from D-HH?
We are eager to begin vaccinating our patients. However, we are not ready to register patients for vaccination appointments at this time. We're working hard to follow State of NH and CDC guidelines while ensuring vaccine doses and vaccination schedules are available to make the process as efficient as possible for all patients.
We know you have many questions and we will do our best to answer them as quickly as possible. New information about vaccine distribution is continuing to be released, and we appreciate your understanding and patience.
We will update this website and continue to send email updates as we learn more.
