Registration for COVID-19 vaccination is open to all individuals over the age of 12.
**a parent or guardian must accompany anyone under the age of 18 to their vaccination appointment
As of Friday, June 4th, registration and scheduling of appointments for COVID-19 vaccines will be done directly through LRH. The State of New Hampshire's COVID-19 registration system and New Hampshire Vaccine & Immunization Network Interface (VINI) will no longer be used.
Beginning the week of July 5th, COVID-19 vaccines at LRH will be administered through Littleton Urgent Care. To schedule an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please call (603) 444-9294. We will take all of your information over the phone and schedule your appointment. Please bring a valid photo ID with you to your vaccination appointment.
If you are at LRH for an appointment and are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, please speak with a member of your care team.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine full approval for people age 16 and older in late August of 2021. Full approval is expected for Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine soon. Until now, all three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use were issued under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
Vaccine Administration at LRH
A valid photo ID for each person receiving the vaccine is required. A parent or legal guardian is required to provide consent for anyone under the age of 18. Please remember to wear something that will allow us to easily access your arm for vaccination. Masks are required at all times.
Following vaccination, you will be required to remain for at least 15 minutes of observation by a clinical team member. Anyone with a history of previous reactions will be asked to stay for 30 minutes of observation.
Two of the three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use require two doses to complete immunization. Patients will automatically be scheduled for their second dose following their first-dose appointment. Patients will be given an appointment card with second-dose appointment information at the time of receiving their first dose. Please remember to bring your vaccine card with you to your second-dose appointment.
People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems may not build the same level of immunity to a 2-dose vaccine series compared to people who are not immunocompromised. Therefore, these individuals may benefit from an additional dose to make sure they have enough protection against COVID-19. This is not the same as a booster dose which is given when the immune response to a primary vaccine series is likely to have waned over time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that individuals with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer or Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine. This recommendation does not apply to those who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Who needs an additional dose?
- Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
- Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
- Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
- Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
- Advanced or untreated HIV infection
- Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response
If you meet one or more of the criteria above, you should talk to your healthcare provider about your medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you.
If you meet the qualifications to receive an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and wish to do so, please call Littleton Urgent Care at (603) 444-9294 to schedule an appointment.
