New Hampshire has set aside a quantity of COVID-19 vaccines for underrepresented populations and health care providers in Manchester are working to eliminate barriers and deploy these vaccines. Primary care providers at Catholic Medical Center are identifying and making home visits to folks with transportation challenges, limited broadband access, or who otherwise might have a tough time booking and attending a vaccine appointment. They have also set up a vaccination clinic at a local homeless shelter and have planned additional outreach to unhoused populations who may not want to visit the shelter. Another priority population for targeted outreach is non-native English speakers. Manchester is hosting specific vaccine clinics for Spanish speakers and Catholic Medical Center has plans for additional dedicated clinics for Nepali and Bhutanese populations. #covid-19 #vaccination #racialequity
