Vaccine Equity and Access: What’s Being Done In N.H. To Reach Vulnerable Communities?

Casey McDermott for NHPR

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


  • 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.
