STATE OF MARYLAND INFORMATION

Children and Adults Ages 12+ Now Eligible
 
COVID-19 vaccine eligibility for Marylanders age 12 to 15 is open. Eleven of the state’s mass vaccination sites and hundreds of pharmacy locations are administering the Pfizer vaccine—which was granted FDA approval earlier this week—to adolescents. Marylanders can search for providers vaccinating adolescents at covidvax.maryland.gov

All Maryland mass vaccination sites now accept no appointment, walk-ups.  If you would prefer an appointment, you can still schedule one by visiting covidvax.maryland.gov or by calling the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829). The support center is available seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The state distribution network for vaccines includes hospitals, county health departments, and neighborhood pharmacies. Use covidvax.maryland.gov to find a provider near you or call 211. Vaccinations at these providers are by appointment only, and some may allow you to pre-register.

Retail pharmacies are also providing vaccinations at locations across the state.  To access scheduling information through the state’s website (search by zip code), visit:
