COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE 1/25/2021


PRESS RELEASE: New Process for Scheduling COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments / Spanish (PDF)

January 25, 2021: The County has entered Phase 1C for pre-registration. At this time, the County is asking all County residents and those who work in the County, who are in 1C, to make sure you have filled out a pre-registration form. The County Health Department is still working to vaccinate people in Phases 1A and 1B. Those in 1C, who have pre-registered, will receive appointments as they become available, which they anticipate could take several weeks or longer. 

January 19, 2021: County Executive Alsobrooks held a press conference to provide an update on COVID-19 vaccine distribution. Watch the press conference here.

Anyone who lives or works in Prince George’s County who does not fall into Phases 1A, 1B or 1C should still fill out the pre-registration form. Based on your responses, you will be notified of eligibility when the County moves into future phases of vaccine distribution. As additional appointments become available, you will receive a link with instructions on how to schedule your vaccine appointment. 

The County Health Department is vaccinating people in Phases 1A and 1B. Those in 1C who have pre-registered will receive appointments as they become available, which we anticipate could take several weeks or longer. Those who have signed up for appointments who do not live or work in the County will not receive a vaccination at our County sites, and their appointments are being canceled. You must provide proof of residency or proof of employment at the time of appointment.

The following individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1C:  

  • Adults ages 65-74 years of age  
  • Health and human services not covered in Phase 1A 
  • Public safety not covered in Phase 1A
  • Essential workers at high risk of exposure (in alphabetical order)
    • Food and agriculture workers (farms and processing centers) 
    • Grocery store workers
    • Public transit workers (including transport for seniors and persons with disabilities)
    • Postal service workers 

Individuals who are eligible to receive vaccinations in Phases 1A and 1B and have not filled out the pre-registration form should do so as soon as possible.
