The Carlisle Board of Health has provided the following link to vaccination clinics in the area. While clinics in Concord are full, there are spaces available in other clinics. The board advises adults registering to answer the "Are you moderately to severely immunocompromised as outlined by the CDC?" with a YES, since it is no longer applicable, but the registration software has not been updated.
