Prince George’s Opens State’s Largest Vaccination Site at Six Flags

Six Flags America in Prince George’s County has been set up to operate as a mass coronavirus vaccination site and will likely be the largest of its type in Maryland.

The Six Flags site in Bowie, which had a soft opening Friday, is one of six mass vaccination sites to be located throughout the state, WJLA-TV (Channel 7) reported.

The state health department, Kaiser Permanente and the Maryland National Guard will man the site, which is located in a back parking lot. Prince George’s health department has contacted people on its vaccine pre-registration list for the finite available slots for inoculations, WJLA reported.

A sign posted outside of the facility’s main gates indicates vaccines will be administered by appointment only.

Currently, Maryland is in Phase 1C for vaccinations, which permits only residents age 65 and older and essential workers to get vaccinated.

As of Friday, Maryland has administered roughly 634,000 vaccine doses, according to the state health department
