Vaccination Phased Distribution

COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed through a phased, equitable approach to the most at-risk populations first. Vaccination efforts will continue until every Prince Georgian is able to get the vaccine. The department may need to prioritize some groups further within these phases based on vaccine availability and distribution abilities.

Prioritization of those vaccinated in each phase is based on recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) as well as state guidance and is subject to change. A person’s eligibility to receive the vaccine is based on the current distribution phase the County is in.

When you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, you will be able to register for an appointment at a Prince George’s County vaccination site near you by visiting marylandvax.org

See below for a breakdown of the current phases.
