Last Day of NHMS Vaccination ‘Super Site’ Is Today

Thousands of Granite Staters received the one shot Johnson & Johnson vaccination this past Saturday and Sunday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon. The last day of this event is happening right now (Monday, March 8).
Over 350 volunteers on each weekend day helped vaccinate close to 8000 people at NHMS, according to WMUR.
There was a bit of a problem with the technology on Saturday and the cold weather was likely the culprit, the news station reported.
Many of the computer systems literally froze up and the transition to an 'old school' paper system caused a delay of up to 3 hours for some people, WMUR noted.
If you had an earlier window on Saturday morning, the entire process took about an hour.
Virtually all the reports from yesterday's event reflect that everything was 'smooth sailing'.
NH resident Diane Berube told WMUR that a simple presentation of her license was followed by the single shot and the return of her license, and she was on her way out in just a few moments.
Perry Plummer of the NH COVID Vaccine Response Team told the news station that 'On top of the 40,000 people that get vaccinated at the fixed sites every week, this is another big piece of the puzzle'.
Now, thanks to this event, nearly 12,000 pieces of that 1.3 million piece puzzle that is NH's population, are fully immunized, according to WMUR.
Will there be another 'Super Site Weekend' at NHMS?
The answer is yes, IF the State Of New Hampshire receives another vaccination shipment in the thousands, the news station added.
Then another event will be scheduled, in the order of whichever Phase is in need of vaccinations.
