CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) - New Hampshire’s COVID vaccination rate is just below 60%, and Gov. Chris Sununu Thursday said that means state workers will be able to return to their offices next month.

The governor said they have thousands of vaccine appointments available right now at more than 300 locations statewide. He’s even encouraging Vermonters who live near the New Hampshire border to get their shots in the Granite State.

And for people in the Upper Valley who feel like going for a drive this weekend, the state is holding three pop-up Johnson and Johnson vaccine clinics this Sunday. Those clinics are in Concord, Nashua and Newington.

Go to vaccines.nh.gov to schedule appointments.

SUNUNU ORDERS STATE WORKERS TO RETURN TO OFFICES BY MAY 10

Gov. Sununu also said state government employees who have been working from home during the pandemic will be back in their offices by May 10. He says he expects state offices to be fully operational and open to the public now that workers have had time to get vaccinated.
