Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • I am happy to announce that we hit a new milestone in our vaccination efforts for everyone to be Proud to be Protected from COVID-19. This week we surpassed 350,000 total vaccinations provided to residents, and nearly one-third of residents ages 16+ have received at least one dose of a vaccine.
  • 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 enter Phase 3 for vaccinations through our County Health Department in the near future. About 1,000 people a day are pre-registering right now, which is down significantly from the past several weeks. That means we will be able to move through our pre-registration list much more quickly now.  
  • As a reminder, the County has a new mass vaccination site located at the Greenbelt Metro Station, operated by FEMA. To receive your vaccination at this location, you must pre-register online with the State of Maryland by visiting covidvax.maryland.gov. You can also call the State’s Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to pre-register.
  • 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.

Yours in Service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive  


Vaccine Supply & Administration

Vax Supply
  • Last week our Health Department provided over 10,800 vaccinations, including 7,400 second doses to residents and workers in the County who are now fully vaccinated.
  • This week we have provided over 4,500 first doses and over 4,100 second doses. We are averaging nearly 2,200 vaccinations per day across our six locations and mobile unit operations.
  • To date, the County has received 97,820 vaccines, and has administered 94,356 of those doses (approximately 96.5%). 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.
  • We are scheduled to receive at least 5,850 first and single doses of vaccine next week. There is a 33% reduction in vaccine allocation as a result of the nationwide Johnson & Johnson issue. Therefore, allocation has been reduced across the State.


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.
