Montgomery County is shutting down its coronavirus mass vaccination site at Montgomery College in Germantown.

Earl Stoddard, director of the county’s emergency management and homeland security office, said the site will shutter Wednesday, with the vaccination program moving to the Upcounty Regional Service Center at the Germantown Commons shopping center, WTOP reported.

The Upcounty site, scheduled to open July 6, will offer the two-dose Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines. Those who received their first shot at the Montgomery College site but haven’t yet gotten the second dose can finish the process at Upcounty.

As of Tuesday, roughly 635,000 Montgomery County residents have been fully vaccinated, or about 61% of the county population, according to health department data.
