Public health workers and others around New Hampshire are working to improve access to vaccines for groups that can face additional barriers, including low-income households, those without transportation, the homebound, and immigrant and refugee populations. We explore what has been working, including mobile-health clinics and more community outreach workers, and where more help is needed.   

Air date: March 2, 2021

GUESTS:

  • Bobbie Bagley - Director of Public Health and Community Services for Nashua. She is also a nurse who runs testing clinics and administers vaccines. 
  • Ashley L. Desrochers - Covid19 Chief of Operations for Strafford County. 
  • Kristen van Bergen-Buteau - Director of Workforce and Public Health Programs for the North Country Health Consortium.
