PHOTO AND VIDEO RELEASE: Governor Hogan Visits New Mass Vaccination Site at M&T Bank Stadium
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today toured the new, 55,000-square foot mass vaccination site at M&T Bank Stadium. It is the third mass vaccination site in the state, and the second in Baltimore City. The site opens on the same day the state has reported a new record of 31,050 shots per day.
The governor was joined by Brigadier General Janeen Birckhead, head of the Maryland Vaccine Equity Task Force; Dr. Mohan Suntha, president and CEO of the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS); Dr. Jason Marx, vaccination site leader; and Michael Frenz, executive director of the Maryland Stadium Authority.
“As we continue to vaccinate more and more Marylanders, each day brings us closer to seeing this stadium packed with fans again,” said Governor Hogan. “We continue to push for increased vaccine production and distribution so that we can realize the full potential of all of our mass sites, which are capable of vaccinating thousands of Marylanders per day.”
Registration is now open for eligible Marylanders to schedule appointments, which will be available on a daily basis. Eligible individuals have two options for making an appointment:
- Completing the online form available at covidvax.maryland.gov.
- Calling 855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to request an appointment, where representatives are available seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
During its initial soft launch phase, between 250 and 500 vaccination appointments will be available daily for the site, which will be ready to provide up to 2,000 vaccinations per day by next week.
Operational support is being provided for the site by UMMS in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health, the Maryland National Guard, the Maryland Stadium Authority, and the Baltimore Ravens. M&T Bank Stadium is located near the Inner Harbor at 1101 Russell Street and is accessible to individuals using public transportation, walking, or driving.
