Prince George’s Adds 3 Vehicles to COVID Mobile Vaccination Fleet

Prince George’s County’s mobile COVID-19 vaccine fleet has added three vehicles ahead of the holiday weekend in an effort to reach more homebound residents.

“Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have said that we need to meet residents where they are,” County Executive Angela Alsobrooks said this week, WTOP reported. “We have taken many steps to reduce barriers to vaccination, and this is yet another example of our commitment to vaccine equity.”

The mobile units aim to administer coronavirus vaccine boosters to immunocompromised residents and to vaccinate children ages 12 to 18.

Prince George’s County was one of the first jurisdictions to operate mobile vaccine units in Maryland to reach COVID-19-plagued neighborhoods with sluggish vaccination rates.

The deployment of the new vehicles comes as county health officials report 90.5% of seniors 65 and older and 76.9% of residents 12 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
