COUNTY RELEASES NEW COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC LOCATIONS AND SCHEDULES

Vaccine operations transition from Sports and Learning Complex to Prince George’s Community College in Largo; new round of first-dose elementary school clinics scheduled through winter break.

Largo, MD – COVID-19 vaccinations will no longer be available at the County’s Sports and Learning Complex clinic starting Sunday, December 12. The clinic is relocating to Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) in the Largo Student Center with vaccinations resuming on Thursday, December 16. Appointments for Sunday, December 12 through Wednesday, December 15 are being rescheduled at the new location.

“The Sports and Learning Complex has been a happy home for us since the start of the vaccine rollout in early 2021 as the clinic has provided more than 40,000 vaccinations to keep Prince Georgians healthy and alive,” said Prince George’s County Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Health, Human Services, and Education Dr. George L. Askew. “Shifting operations over to the community college’s main campus in Largo allows the County and its partners to continue to meet the high vaccine demand while accommodating upcoming youth sports, and other activities that typically take place at the Sports and Learning Complex.”
