Cheshire Medical Center in Keene hosted a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine clinic Saturday for children receiving their first shots and adults getting boosters.

About 1,000 patients were vaccinated at what nurses are calling their biggest drive-thru vaccine clinic ever.

Pediatrics and family medicine nurse manager Kristen Lippincott-Battey said it is great that people want to get their boosters since there is “so much COVID-19 in the community.”

“We had a lot of people who wanted to sign up, and we just kept increasing our numbers because we want to help as many patients as we could,” Lippincott-Battey said.

Nashua’s clinic on Friday also quickly hit capacity. Officials eventually needed to turn away walk-in patients.

Durham canceled its clinic scheduled for Monday due to a lack of resources to accommodate everyone trying to get vaccinated.

Cheshire County, like others statewide, has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

“There’s definitely an uptick, especially with travel and the recent holiday,” said pediatric nurse Stefanie Ramsay. ” We are definitely seeing numbers rise.”

Lippincott-Battey said the case increase is all the more reason to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Vaccination is the best thing that we can do and wearing masks every time we go out,” Lippincott Battey said.
