Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • I’m happy to announce that we hit a new milestone in our vaccination efforts for everyone to be Proud to be Protected from COVID-19. Earlier this week we surpassed 200,000 total vaccinations provided to residents, and now we are almost at 250,000 total vaccinations provided to residents.
  • I also want to highlight the number of older adults that have been vaccinated from our pre-registration list. So far, 69.9% of all seniors 85 and older, 74.5% of seniors ages 75 – 84, and 72.2% of seniors ages 65-74, that have pre-registered with the county Health Department have received at least one dose of vaccine. We continue to prioritize our older adults as they pre-register, so please make sure the seniors in your life are pre-registered so we can get them vaccinated.
  • As a reminder, the County recently moved to scheduling vaccine appointments for individuals on our pre-registration list who are eligible in Phase 2A of the vaccine distribution plan. Individuals in Phase 2A include adults 60 years of age and older.
  • Given the increase in vaccine supply, the County will likely start to move more quickly through our pre-registration list. Those in later phases will likely not have to wait as long to receive their vaccine. Therefore, I encourage you to do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 by pre-registering today for your vaccine appointment by visiting mypgc.us/ProudtobeProtected.
  • Please remember that only individuals who live or work in Prince George’s County should pre-register with our County Health Department. In addition, all County Health Department vaccination clinics are open by appointment only. Walk-ups are not accepted.
  • Our Health Department finished comparing our pre-registration list with lists of County residents who have been vaccinated outside of our County Health Department. More information about our pre-registration list is below, but nearly half of County residents that have pre-registered with us have now been vaccinated.
  • Finally, the Sports & Learning vaccination clinic reopening will have to be pushed back due to unforeseen circumstances. All appointments at the Sports & Learning clinic on March 29th and March 30th will be relocated to another site and/or rescheduled to the nearest possible open appointment. If you had an appointment for that date at the Sports & Learning clinic, please check your email, including your Junk/Spam folder.

Yours in Service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive
