Maryland Sends Out Sound Truck to Shout Down Vaccine Myths

Maryland’s health department has deployed a sound truck in Prince George’s County and Baltimore City neighborhoods to counter popular misconceptions regarding the coronavirus and the vaccines.

Residents will hear recorded bilingual messages about coronavirus testing, best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the safety of the vaccines as well as receive masks and flyers with information, according to state health officials.

Neighborhoods in the two jurisdictions with the highest number of cases will be visited by the truck, which started operating Sunday as part of the state’s GoVAX campaign. The truck is scheduled to visit six targeted neighborhoods from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. with Friday being the last day of operation.

“The pandemic has presented challenges for all Marylanders and disproportionately impacted some of the state’s minority communities,” said acting Health Secretary Dennis Schrader. “The GoVAX campaign is designed to bring information and resources to areas hardest hit and help Marylanders make informed choices about getting vaccinated.”
