Mass COVID Vaccination Site Opens in Montgomery County

A mass coronavirus vaccination site that opened Wednesday at Montgomery College’s Germantown campus is expected to eventually administer up to 3,000 doses daily.

Montgomery County’s health department said the site will be managed by the county, along with Holy Cross Health and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital, for the first week and will vaccinate between 500 and 1,000 people daily, WTOP reported.

The state will take the reins next week, increasing the daily production to between 2,000 and 3,000 doses.

The location is a walk-through site, unlike some mass vaccination sites where the shots are administered as recipients stay inside their vehicles.

A health department spokesperson said classrooms and larger spaces have been reserved on the campus’s Bioscience Education Center, where people will be able to get in line, get vaccinated and wait in a separate space for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended 15 minutes of observation, WTOP reported.
