CONCORD - Gov. Chris Sununu along with state officials are today urging patience ahead of Monday's rollout of VINI for ages 40+, indicating there may be a wait for individuals looking to book appointments online during high volume times as the state moves ahead of the rest of New England in opening up the vaccine to those 40 and over.
"While VINI's initial roll out last week was a success, we are constantly seeking to improve the experience for Granite Staters," said Sununu. "We have made upgrades to the system which will allow more than 1,000 people per minute to register with plenty of appointments for everyone. Also, instead of overrunning the system early in the morning, I ask individuals to consider registering during lower volume times to help ensure a smooth and orderly day for all registrants."
The state is utilizing a new online waiting room ahead of the 40+ age group so that individuals will have a sense for the length of wait they can expect. The feature will share an estimated number of minutes until it's their turn to proceed through the registration and appointment process.
The state is urging everyone to use only one device ahead of the registration process. Individuals who attempt to sign on with multiple devices risk having longer wait times and will contribute to a slower registration process.
