  • Want to volunteer to help when the vaccine arrives?

    This release was not created by the Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth, but is being share via its website.

    PORTSMOUTH—Gov. Sununu announced that the first batches of COVID-19 vaccine may arrive in New Hampshire before Christmas and the state Department of Health and Human Services said in a draft policy that the first phase to get the vaccine will include older adults living in residential care settings like nursing homes and assisted living facilities, first responders and high-risk workers in health-care facilities.

    A corps of qualified vaccinators and non-vaccinators for coordinating the process will be needed as the vaccination effort ramps up. The City Health Department asks residents who are interested in volunteering to visit the NH Responds website. https://nhresponds.org/ and complete the online registration form. https://nhresponds.org/agreement.php 

    Volunteers should make sure they check off the "Seacoast COVID Team" in the "COVID-19 Teams" drop-down list in the Organization section of the form to volunteer for Greater Portsmouth efforts.  ​
