Hundreds get vaccine at local clinic

NORTH HAVERHILL—With cooperative weather, last week’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic went smoothly as 450 Grafton County residents received their first shots via a drive-through clinic at the Horse Meadow Senior Center.
In early February Dick Guy, director of Woodsville Ambulance contacted Maureen Platt-Russell, newly hired director of the HMSC to see if she could get at least 150 names of people interested in getting the vaccine.
“We put out feelers with our participants to gauge interest and were overwhelmed with calls,” she said.
Within two to three hours, there were enough names collected to make the clinic a reality.
