Although Governor Hogan has stated that group 1C is eligible for COVID-19 vaccine starting today, he has also requested that we continue to prioritize senior residents and dedicate at least 100 doses a week to education staff. The vaccine is still in limited supply, so while groups 1A, 1B, and 1C are eligible in the state, Washington County is currently vaccinating the following:
- Phase 1A: all priority groups
- Phase 1B:
- Adults age 65 and older
- Certain local congregate living facilities
- Education teachers and staff
We hope to move forward with vaccinating the other priority groups in phases 1B and 1C in the near future. Currently, public demand for COVID-19 vaccines exceeds the current supply Maryland receives from the federal government. Due to the limited supply, not everyone will be able to get vaccinated right away. We urge everyone to remain patient until they are eligible and there is an adequate supply of vaccines.
Meritus Health is coordinating vaccination clinics for WCPS teachers and employees starting this week. The Washington County Health Department is working with local private schools to begin scheduling vaccination appointments as quickly as possible. If you are a teacher or staff, please reach out to your employer with any questions.
Those aged 65 and older can complete the form below to be contacted for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. You will be contacted to schedule your vaccine appointment in the order in which your request has been received.
