'Booster Blitz' To Be Launched In New Hampshire As COVID Cases Rise

CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) -- Governor Chris Sununu has announced a "booster blitz" initiative in New Hampshire. On December 11, there will be 20 sites set up statewide to give fully vaccinated people a booster shot.

Boosters given on that day will be fully effective in time for Christmas.

New Hampshire is averaging nearly 1,000 new infections a day and the seven-day positivity rate is now 9.5%. That's the most cases the state has seen at any point in the pandemic.
