FISCAL COMMITTEE ACCEPTS FEDERAL VACCINATION FUNDS

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, the Joint Fiscal Committee voted to accept a proposal from the Department of Health and Human Services to use $4.7 million in ARPA funds to boost the state’s vaccination efforts. Representative Mary Jane Wallner (D-Concord) released the following statement:


“I am pleased that the Fiscal committee voted today to finally accept some federal funding to boost the state’s vaccination efforts. Our vaccination rate has stalled, largely because Republicans have embraced outlandish conspiracies and extremist beliefs to justify blocking federal assistance. New Hampshire is the only state in the U.S. to reject CDC vaccine funding, which has limited our ability to control how the vaccines are provided to Granite Staters. Today’s vote was long overdue and I hope the approved funds can be quickly implemented to make up for lost time.”
