This weekend at the NH Motor Speedway, NH will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a report from WMUR.
Hold your horses, Bub. You can't just drive up to Louden and expect to get the vaccine. You have to have an appointment.
According to the article, the State has already reached out to people who have not had any other shots and have appointments in April to see if they want to come to Louden this weekend. The State is also encouraging people to call 211 to schedule an appointment.
The clinic will open Saturday at 8am and will run for three days. They hope to distribute 10,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to WMUR.
If any place can handle lots of traffic, it's the Speedway. When the races used to happen with max capacity, I used to avoid that section of the state at all costs. They really do get people and out of there quickly.
David McGrath of NHMS said in the WMUR report:
We're really, really well versed on hosting a lot of people on the property, like NASCAR Weekend. We've been doing it for 30 years, so moving people and handling traffic flow -- we've got that all dialed down.
Honestly, you can't disagree. They do a great job.
