Mass Vaccinations Set for New Hampshire Motor Speedway This Weekend

“This mass vaccination site is not open to walk-in appointments,” the news release reads. “The state will proactively reach out to individuals with later first-dose appointments in April and offer them the opportunity to move up their appointment to this weekend.”

Sununu said the state is working hard to get the vaccines “into the arms of Granite Staters” as fast as possible.

“This weekend we are looking to set records and I would like to thank our team of state and local officials dedicating the time and effort to ensure this operation is successful,” he said in a statement.

The state hopes to vaccinate over 10,000 people this weekend at the Speedway.

The site will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, Sunday and Monday for those with an appointment.

The state is currently vaccinating those in the 1B group: people 65 and up; the medically vulnerable; those in developmental disability residential facilities; correctional facility staff; and remaining health workers and first responders.

The speedway joins other sports venues being used as mass vaccination sites, including Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and Fenway Park in Boston.
