Free COVID-19 vaccinations continue at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, the Southern Regional Technology and Recreation Complex in Fort Washington, and via the County’s three mobile clinics.
Largo, MD – The Prince George’s County Health Department is demobilizing COVID-19 vaccination operations at the Cheverly Health Center at the end of the day on Friday, May 21st and at the Laurel-Beltsville Senior Activity Center at the end of the day on Friday, May 28th. The Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex and the Southern Regional Technology and Recreation Complex will continue vaccinating people 12 and older who live or work in the County.
Vaccinations will also continue via the County’s three mobile units. Some of the additional staff and resources from the demobilized clinics will be reallocated to assist with vaccinating homebound residents and people with other access barriers.
Demobilizing the Cheverly Health Center clinic allows the Health Department to prepare for upcoming school immunizations and will help ensure the continuity of other vital clinical operations and services for residents. Ending COVID-19 vaccinations at the Laurel-Beltsville Senior Activity Center is in line with County and State plans to reopen and safely resume services and activities at senior centers and other recreation sites.
Any vaccination appointments scheduled at the Cheverly or Laurel clinics will be rescheduled for the Sports and Learning Complex and patients will be notified by phone.
“Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is easier than ever as vaccine supply is outpacing demand nationwide. More pharmacies, hospitals, and private practices are offering these free and life-saving vaccines to anyone who is eligible,” said Prince George’s County Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Health, Human Services, and Education Dr. George L. Askew. “Permanent and pop-up vaccine clinics that are community-based are also playing a larger role to get more Prince Georgians protected. Vaccinations will continue Countywide, but we must be flexible in our operations as the pandemic evolves and reopening expands.”
The new total capacity at all County-run clinics will be 2,500 vaccinations a day, not including mobile unit activities. Anyone 12 years or older who lives or works in the County is encouraged to schedule a first-dose appointment at mypgc.us/Proudtobeprotected or by calling 311 and pressing #. Second-dose appointments, if applicable, will be made at the clinic during the first-dose visit. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the clinic to provide vaccination consent.
There are multiple public transit options to get to vaccination sites in the County, several of which are free. Call the County’s Vaccination Transportation Hotline at 301-499-8557 to secure a ride for you or your loved ones to the clinic.
Eligible individuals can also seek appointments at the State’s mass vaccination sites by visiting covidvax.maryland.gov or calling 1-855-634-6829. In addition, the department encourages residents to utilize the County’s vaccine clinic locator that has an interactive map allowing users to search for clinics located in the County.
