Prince George’s Removes Pre-Registration Requirement for Vaccinations

Prince George’s County residents no longer need to pre-register for coronavirus vaccination appointments.

The county has now moved to open registration, meaning eligible residents can schedule their first-dose appointments at any county-operated vaccination site, Prince George’s officials said Monday. Appointments for second doses, if needed, will be scheduled at the clinic during the first-dose appointment.

“The county’s vaccine supply and administration capacity have grown to the point where we can give residents even more convenience and predictability in the process to get these safe and highly effective vaccines as quickly as possible,” said Dr. George L. Askew, deputy chief administrative officer for the Prince George’s County Department of Health, Human Services and Education.

“I urge you and your family, friends and neighbors to protect yourself and each other by getting vaccinated and continuing to wear masks, social distancing, and avoid gatherings, crowds and travel,” Askew said. “Let’s make public health history together and end this pandemic.”

Prince George’s County and the state of Maryland are in Phase 3 of vaccination eligibility, which includes everyone 16 and older.

As of Tuesday, Prince George’s County has administered roughly 123,000 of its 145,000 available coronavirus vaccine doses, according to county data. So far, approximately 327,000 residents have received at least one dose.
