Maryland Phasing Out Mass COVID Vaccination Sites

With 70% of Marylanders having received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, Gov. Larry Hogan announced Thursday that most of the state’s mass vaccination sites will soon close.

According to the schedule, eight clinics will offer final shots between Friday and July 17.

A ninth clinic at the Greenbelt Metro station, managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, administered on Tuesday the second shot of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine and the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

No decision has been made for four other clinics at the Baltimore Convention Center, Montgomery College in Germantown, the Timonium Fairgrounds in Baltimore County and a site in Frederick County. Local officials may continue operations at these sites or other county and municipal locations.

“I said our goal was to put ourselves out of business at these mass vaccination sites, and as one of the most vaccinated states in the country, we are now approaching that point,” Hogan said in a statement.

June 26 will be the last day for individuals to receive the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro. That group will get the second and final dose three weeks later on July 17.

In Waldorf in neighboring Charles County, second and single-shot doses will be completed on June 24.

The Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis will stop administering first doses on June 12 and continue second doses and Johnson & Johnson doses through July 3.

No Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, but the first Pfizer doses can be administered through June 10 with the last shots until July 2.

William J. Ford – Washington Informer Staff Writer

I decided I wanted to become a better writer while attending Bowie State University and figured that writing for the school newspaper would help. I’m not sure how much it helped, but I enjoyed it so much I decided to keep on doing it, which I still thoroughly enjoy 20 years later. If I weren’t a journalist, I would coach youth basketball. Actually, I still play basketball, or at least try to play, once a week. My kryptonite is peanut butter. What makes me happy – seeing my son and two godchildren grow up. On the other hand, a bad call made by an official during a football or basketball game makes me throw up my hands and scream. Favorite foods include pancakes and scrambled eggs which I could eat 24-7. The strangest thing that’s ever happened to me, or more accurately the most painful, was when I was hit by a car on Lancaster Avenue in Philadelphia. If I had the power or money to change the world, I’d make sure everyone had three meals a day. And while I don’t have a motto or favorite quote, I continue to laugh which keeps me from driving myself crazy.
