A nor'easter washed into New Hampshire this week, though the storm's effects were far greater in Massachusetts and Rhode Islands.

This week, New Hampshire is getting ready to roll out the COVID vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, pending CDC approval. The state also provided some more information this week about issues with the state’s vaccine data.

And voters all across the state are heading to the polls next week in city elections. The mayoral race in Manchester, the state’s largest city, is a rematch between incumbent Joyce Craig and Victoria Sullivan.

We get to all those stories and more on this edition of the N.H. News Recap.
