Gov. Chris Sununu

Gov. Chris Sununu speaks with a reporter in his office at the State House in Concord last week. The governor issued the first executive order declaring a state of emergency due to COVID-19 on March 13, 2020.

CONCORD — All New Hampshire residents 16 and older will be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine by next Friday, according to Gov. Chris Sununu.

The governor announced Thursday that residents age 40-49 can register starting Monday.  Those 30 and up can register on Wednesday, and anyone 16 and up can register starting Friday.

“The team continues to get doses into arms as quickly as the federal government delivers them,” Sununu said.

“We are accelerating our efforts and as I’ve long said, within the very near future, every Granite Stater 16 and older will be able to register for the vaccine. New Hampshire is moving full speed ahead.”

Last week, Sununu had said he was working on the final timelines.

The signup for those 50 and older began Monday.

In the past week, the governors of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine released their schedules for vaccinating adult residents.

Sununu had said he was delaying making this decision until it was clear that the state would receive enough vaccine to complete the earlier phases for the people most at risk of getting sick or dying from the virus.
