- Family caregivers of medically vulnerable individuals under age 16, not eligible for vaccine.
Please know that our top priority is for our patients and members of our community to receive the vaccine as soon as they are able. Vaccination plans are evolving very quickly and we are working closely with the State of New Hampshire and New Hampshire Hospital Association to better understand their distribution plans and what role LRH can play in vaccinating our patients and community members.
Latest Updates for Phase 1B
On January 25, LRH was notified that anyone that had previously scheduled an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Littleton Regional Healthcare, would be receiving a notice that the appointment had been cancelled due to a scheduling error. Those affected should cancel their original appointment and rebook through the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS). For those wishing to receive their COVID-19 vaccine at LRH, please select Littleton Regional Hospital - Public Clinic as the vaccination site.
If the original appointment listed the Littleton Armory as the vaccination site, there is no need to cancel and rebook.
We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as we work through this together. We will continue to share updates as we receive information from the State of NH. For step-by-step instructions, please click here [241 KB pdf].
Vaccine Administration at LRH
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we work to establish our COVID-19 vaccination clinic. We are working very closely with the State of NH to provide vaccines to those eligible in Phase 1B.
LRH's Public Clinic opens Friday, January 29th by appointment only. You must register and schedule an appointment in advance. (Register here and schedule your appointment here.) Please follow signs for "Pre-Scheduled COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic" as you approach the LRH campus, turning onto Hilltop Road and then making a left-hand turn to access the site. A staff member will greet you at the bottom of the hill to provide further instructions.
A valid New Hampshire photo ID for each person receiving the vaccine is required. Please remember to wear something that will allow us to easily access your arm for vaccination through your vehicle window. Masks are required at all times.
Following vaccination, you will be required to park and remain for at least 15 minutes of observation. You will remain in your vehicle during this time and a member of our clinical staff will monitor you for symptoms of a reaction. Patients will be instructed to honk their horn if you are experiencing any symptoms of a reaction. Anyone with a history of previous reactions will be asked to stay for 30 minutes of observation.
Please note, we are only able to provide COVID-19 vaccines to NH residents. If you do not qualify to receive your vaccine in Phase 1B of NH's vaccine distribution plan, please cancel your appointment. We will not be administering vaccines to anyone that does not qualify to receive their vaccine in the State of NH

For patients of North Country Primary Care
If you are a North Country Primary Care patient under the age of 65 with medical vulnerabilities that meet Phase 1B criteria, LRH has confirmed your eligibility with the State of NH. LRH has identified you as qualifying for a COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1B because your medical conditions meet the criteria outlined by the State of NH's vaccine distribution plan.
Your information has been entered into the vaccine scheduling system and you should expect to receive an invitation via email to schedule an appointment for a vaccine by January 27. The invitation will come to your email from email@example.com. Please check your spam and junk folders to make sure it didn't get accidentally filtered incorrectly. You must complete the instructions in this email to schedule your vaccination appointment. Please contact North Country Primary Care at (603) 444-7070 if you do not receive an invitation.
For patients without email, we have submitted your contact information including your phone number to the NH Department of Health and Human Services. You should expect a call from their office by January 27 to help you schedule an appointment. Please contact North Country Primary Care at (603) 444-7070 if you do not receive a call by January 27.
If you are a caregiver of a medically vulnerable North Country Primary Care patient under the age of 16, LRH has shared your information with the NH Division of Public Health Services (NH DPHS) to verify your eligibility. While the patient under the age of 16 is not eligible for the vaccine at this time, the caregiver is eligible to receive the vaccine in Phase 1B. As the caregiver, we encourage you to register online or call 2-1-1. Call North Country Primary Care at (603) 444-7070 if there are any issues after contacting the vaccine registry.
Please note: The State of New Hampshire has informed us that due to Federal vaccine allocation guidelines, we will not be able to vaccinate individuals who reside outside of NH. Unfortunately, this includes our primary care patients who live in Vermont. Those patients should contact the Vermont Department of Health.
If you are not a patient of North Country Primary Care or do not have a primary care provider, but are eligible to receive the vaccine in Phase 1B, please contact 2-1-1 or visit vaccines.nh.gov.
If you have questions or concerns about whether or not you should receive the vaccine when you're eligible, we do encourage you to discuss these matters with your primary care provider.
The U.S. Federal Government, through Operation Warp Speed, is working to make COVID-19 vaccines available as soon as possible. In early November, LRH and healthcare settings across the country were notified of a phased distribution plan for the two COVID-19 vaccines ready for use.
LRH is participating in this distribution plan coordinated by the Federal Government and State of New Hampshire. It is mandatory that LRH follows the allocation criteria as outlined.
In mid-December, LRH received our first doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and we began administering vaccines to our frontline personnel. LRH is following the distribution criteria issued by the State of NH and U.S. Government which dictates vaccines are to be distributed according to the workforce risk level. We continue to receive incremental deliveries of both the Pfizer vaccine as well as the Moderna vaccine from the State of New Hampshire each week. Everyone at LRH that wishes to receive the vaccine will have the opportunity to be vaccinated by the end of January and are proud to report that nearly 85% of LRH personnel have elected to receive the vaccine.
