Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

As we work to expand the number of residents who are Proud to be Protected from COVID-19, I want to remind residents not to share vaccination appointment links with others. Recently, we have seen a number of residents, who are not eligible, showing up for vaccine appointments that were made possible by shared appointment links from family and friends. I want to remind residents that under our new system, the Health Department will not send you a link for your appointment. They will only send appointment dates and times to eligible residents who have pre-registered. If for some reason you receive a link from a friend or family member, please do NOT utilize the link to schedule an appointment. While it is a difficult decision to make, we will unfortunately not be able to honor appointments for those who are not eligible.  

We are also working hard to reschedule everyone who had first dose appointments cancelled between February 19 and February 22. Everyone who is eligible should have a new appointment date and time by this weekend. Right now, we are prioritizing individuals in Phases 1A and 1B, while our supply of vaccines is limited.  

I encourage everyone to pre-register for your vaccine appointment if you are not already, so when the times comes, you will receive an appointment for this life-saving vaccine. Thank you for bearing with us as we work to expand the number of residents who are Proud to be Protected from COVID-19. When your turn comes, I urge you to get the vaccine so you can protect your family, loved ones, friends, neighbors and fellow Prince Georgians.

Yours in service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive


Vaccine Supply & Administration

Vaccine Supply

Currently, the vaccination capacity at our County Health Department’s clinics, including mobile clinics, is 2,000 people per day. However, the number of vaccinations provided is dependent on the supply we receive from the State. This week’s shipment of vaccinations includes doses that were delayed due to the winter weather we had last week.  

  • The County Health Department received 8,400 first doses and 2,750 second doses this week.
  • On February 24, we shared 500 doses with our partners at Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center and 250 to our partners at MedStar Southern Maryland.
  • Despite the weather issues last week, we administered 6,600 vaccines through our Health Department, the second-highest weekly total to date!
  • To date, the County has received 44,550 doses of vaccines, and has administered 34,500 of those doses (approximately 77.4%). This metric (percentage of vaccine administered) changes day to day as new vaccine shipments come in and the number of second dose vaccines waiting to be given are administered in the days ahead.
  • Out of the vaccines we have not administered, 4,949 are first doses and 5,101 are second doses. We expect to utilize the remainder of our first dose supply by the end of the day on Monday, March 1.
  • We are scheduled to receive at least 4,200 first dose vaccines from the State next week, which we will get out to Prince Georgians.
  • Between now and March 5, we have a total of 7,560 appointments scheduled and counting.

County Pre-Registration List

Pre Registration

In order to receive a COVID-19 vaccine through the Prince George’s County Health Department, individuals who live or work in the County must fill out our pre-registration form.

  • Over 148,000 pre-registrations have been received as of February 25 (over 132,000 are County residents).
  • 62% of County residents who have pre-registered are eligible in Phase 1.
  • We are still prioritizing scheduling individuals in Phases 1A and 1B.

The numbers from this list will continue to fluctuate as more Prince Georgians pre-register for vaccinations, and as others receive appointments at our clinics and are removed from the list.


Know the Facts About COVID-19 Vaccines

myths and facts

Our health officials want to be sure you know the scientific facts about COVID-19 vaccines. These vaccines are safe and effective, protecting us and our loved ones when we take them.   


Vaccination Locations

Cam Grove

We have begun to deploy our mobile vaccination units into the community and over two days have vaccinated over 478 pre-registered older adults. We will continue to take the mobile units to areas in need.

While the County Health Department currently operates four vaccination clinics in the County, there are a number of vaccination sites available in Prince George’s County that are not operated by the County. Each site not operated by the County has its own vaccine appointment scheduling process to distribute vaccines received directly from the State or Federal Government. While this is not ideal, we encourage you to sign up at these other sites to increase your options to receive a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

Please remember that we do not manage nor control appointments, or distribution for any sites besides those operated by our County Health Department.
