Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • I want to continue to encourage you to do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 by pre-registering for your vaccine appointment. Given the increase in vaccine supply, the County will likely enter Phase 2A for vaccinations through our County Health Department next week.
  • Please pre-register for your appointment as soon as possible. With vaccine supply increasing, those in later phases will likely not have to wait as long to receive their vaccine. The sooner we can get most of our residents vaccinated, the sooner we can defeat this pandemic once and for all.
  • We’re happy to report the First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG) has partnered with University of Maryland Capital Region Health and the State to serve as a vaccination site and provide COVID-19 vaccines to Prince George’s County residents.
    • You do not need to be a member of FBCG to receive your vaccination at this location, however you must be a Prince George’s County resident.
    • All vaccines are administered by licensed medical professionals and will take place inside the FBCG Family Life Center. The clinic is not a drive-thru clinic.
    • Also, being a FBCG member does not automatically qualify you to receive the vaccine at this location. The location is available for every resident who qualifies for the vaccine based on the current state of Maryland guidelines and who completes the registration.
    • To complete the registration process and schedule an appointment, visit umms.org/GetTheVaccine or call the State of Maryland COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829).
    • For more information about the FGCG vaccination site, please click here.
  • In addition, Governor Hogan has launched a pre-registration process for those wanting to get vaccinated at mass vaccination sites. Marylanders must now pre-register online at maryland.gov or call 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to be vaccinated at mass vaccination sites. Individuals are notified to initiate the scheduling process via their preferred contact method. Vaccination appointments are then scheduled within minutes.
  • As a reminder, the Sports & Learning vaccination clinic is closed until March 28 and will reopen on March 29, due to scheduled maintenance at the facility. The opening of Kentland Community Center and Cedar Heights Community Center will ensure we do not lose vaccination capacity for our County Health Department. All vaccination clinics are open by appointment only. Walk-ups are not accepted.

Yours in Service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive  


Vaccine Supply & Administration

Vaccine Supply
  • Last week our Health Department provided over 8,300 vaccinations and exhausted all our first dose and single dose supply. This week we have already provided over 5,300 first doses.
  • This week we have already provided over 6,300 vaccinations.
  • To date, the County has received 73,760 vaccines, and has administered 63,390 of those doses (approximately 85.9%). 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.
  • Of the vaccines that remain, only 3,381 are first doses, and the rest are set aside for second-dose appointments.
  • We will receive 6,900 doses of Moderna beginning next week (March 22 – April 12).

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 192,000 pre-registrations have been received as of March 18 (over 168,000 are County residents).
  • 60% of County residents who have pre-registered are eligible in Phase 1.
  • Over 46,000 County residents on the pre-registration list have already been vaccinated (27.5%).
    • Our Health Department is currently comparing our pre-registration list with lists of County residents who have been vaccinated outside of our County Health Department to get a better estimate of the total number of residents on the pre-registration list that have been vaccinated. We expect to have that information available next week. The number of residents vaccinated at other sites will significantly increase our total number of residents vaccinated on our pre-registration list.
  • We are still prioritizing scheduling individuals in Phase 1.
