The Washington Football Team says it’s prepared to let Maryland officials use FedEx Field for a mass vaccination site.

The team recently had the Landover stadium assessed by the Maryland National Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a team spokesperson told WUSA-TV (Channel 9).

Maryland currently has three mass vaccination sites in operation — Six Flags America theme park near Bowie, which is set to ramp up its production to more than 4,000 vaccinations per day; Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium, which will soon up its production to 2,000 vaccines daily; and the Baltimore Convention Center.

Gov. Larry Hogan announced Tuesday that the Blue Crab Stadium in Charles County, the Hagerstown Premium Outlets in Hagerstown and Wicomico Youth and Civic Center on the Eastern Shore will be added as mass vaccination sites.

As of Wednesday, Maryland has administered roughly 1.4 million of its available coronavirus vaccine doses, with 745,000 people receiving both shots of the two-dose vaccines currently in circulation, according to a state-run tracker.
