Hassan visits Salem vaccination site
SALEM, N.H. — Sen. Maggie Hassan toured one of the state’s COVID-19 vaccination sites, inside the Mall at Rockingham Park, Tuesday.
State officials recently redirected Granite Staters from Exit 4 in Londonderry to the former Lord and Taylor department store in Salem to receive doses of the vaccine.
“I am really grateful to the National Guard, the Salem Fire Department, and so many others who have stepped up to make these vaccination sites possible,” Hassan said in a statement.
Also, “We know how important it is to ramp up getting shots into arms to get through this pandemic and get to the other side of it. I was glad to work with Senator (Jeanne) Shaheen to secure an additional $30.6 million for New Hampshire so that all of these sites have the resources that they need.”
Hassan was joined Tuesday by local and state officials who have a hand in running the clinic.
