Some NH People Reporting Issues With Signing Up for a COVID Vaccine as Those 50+ Are Now Eligible
The next phase of eligible people in New Hampshire to get a vaccine, those between the ages of 50 and 64, was all set to start on Monday.
Granite Staters within this new age range would be able to log on to the state's appointment website at vaccines.nh.gov around 8 a.m. and register for a shot.
However, some have reported having issues with the new website, including errors, being stuck on a particular screen, and more.
One New Hampshire resident, Alison Adamczyk, said she was frustrated with the situation.
"It took SO long to load pages in all phases of registration, activate, and appointment sections!" she said.
Adamczyk said she switched browsers to try again but was "on the sites for over an hour all told" before finally being able to schedule an appointment.
Some have said they still can't get in.
There were also hundreds Granite Staters commenting on the situation on a WMUR Facebook post about the vaccine registration.
They ranged from not being able to even enter basic information to being able to register but then not schedule an appointment to frozen pages to error pages.
The 211 line for assistance is also reportedly busy.
Governor Chris Sununu had previously said at Thursday's press conference that before opening vaccine eligibility to those 16 and up that they wanted to make sure that the new system could handle the influx of registrations in the next phase's age bracket and make any adjustments that might need to be made if there are any issues, according to a previous story with Seacoast Current.
As of now, it appears that some adjustments or fixes will need to made as people in New Hampshire continue to have difficulty using the registration website.
