The state’s first mass vaccination sites are now open at the Baltimore Convention Center and Six Flags America in Prince George’s County. To receive updates on appointments for mass vaccination sites, text ‘MdReady’ to 898-211.
The state is expanding the distribution network for COVID-19 vaccines, including hospitals, county health departments, and neighborhood pharmacies. Use covidvax.maryland.gov to find a provider near you by zip code, or call 211 for assistance. Vaccinations are by appointment only, and some providers may allow you to pre-register.
In accordance with federal guidelines, Maryland is in Phase 1C of the vaccine distribution plan, including residents 65 and over, as well as critical workers in high-risk settings. Supply remains very limited: while federal guidelines make 2 million Marylanders eligible, the state is only receiving 11,000 doses per day. Click here to see if you’re eligible.
