RECOMMENDED RESOURCES ABOUT THE VACCINE:
We are encouraged with the news that COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for distribution across the country. LRGHealthcare is currently working on plans for the COVID-19 vaccination distribution to our staff and community. The State of NH is distributing this vaccine in a phased-in approach with the first group going to at-risk health corkers, residents of long-term care facilities and first responders.
We understand that you might have questions about the vaccine and we hope to be able to answer those questions as we continue the planning process. We are in the early stages of planning and will continue to update you as more information is available. Please check our website often as the latest information on the vaccine and distribution plans will be updated there.
- The vaccine will require two doses, given 21 or 28 days apart depending on the vaccine. Both doses will be required for the vaccine to be effective.
- Supply of the vaccine is limited, however over the next couple of months we hope that most high-risk groups will have an opportunity to be vaccinated.
- More information on the vaccine and when you might be able to expect to get yours will be posted as we move forward.
