Bowie State Hosts 1st COVID Vaccine Clinic, Town Hall

The Maryland Vaccine Equity Task Force held a coronavirus vaccine clinic Monday at Bowie State University — the school’s first — as well as a town hall to address questions and concerns about the vaccines.

Two hundred doses of the two-shot Moderna vaccine were available for students, faculty and staff at the Prince George’s County university, WBAL-TV in Baltimore reported.

The clinic at the historically Black institution is part of the state’s campaign to vaccinate key segments of the population.

“The goal of the clinic is to vaccinate as many Bowie State University members as possible today,” said Dr. Rita Wutoh, director of the institution’s health center, WBAL reported. “We have students, many students, who have gotten infected twice already. So don’t take it for granted that just because you COVID already maybe in August or something, it’s possible that you could still get infected a second time.”

As of Tuesday, Prince George’s County has administered roughly 123,000 of its 145,000 available coronavirus vaccine doses, according to county data. So far, approximately 327,000 residents have received at least one dose.
