Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • Today I announced that, under the advice of County health officials, we will follow CDC recommendations that say those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear a mask when outdoors walking, running, hiking or biking, or in small gatherings with members of their household or other fully vaccinated people.
  • Masks are still required in crowded outdoor venues like sports stadiums or outdoor concert venues. Unvaccinated residents are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated and continue wearing their masks outdoors until they are fully vaccinated. Masks are still required in all indoor venues and while on public transportation.
  • All other COVID-19 safety guidelines and requirements remain in place at this time, including capacity restrictions for businesses, however additional information will come in the near future.
  • I’m also happy to announce that those who live or work in the County no longer need to pre-register for an appointment through our County Health Department. Individuals can now schedule their own first-dose vaccine appointments at all vaccination clinics operated by the County Health Department by visiting mypgc.us/COVIDvaccine. Individuals who do not have Internet access can book vaccination appointments by calling 311 and pressing # for assistance.
  • As a reminder, the County now has a vaccine clinic locator with an interactive map that allows users to search for clinics located in the County by using an address, a zip code, or a place name. To use the COVID-19 Vaccine Locator search tool, click here.
  • In efforts to allow Prince Georgians easier access to COVID-19 vaccinations, a pilot walk-up vaccination clinic will open at the Sports and Learning Complex for a one-day event on Monday, May 3, 2021. Any Prince George’s County resident or worker may get a vaccination without an appointment. There will be 500 doses available, so vaccine will be administered on a first come-first served basis. Gates will open at 7:00 AM. The Sports and Learning Complex will resume its normal appointment schedule on Tuesday.
  • The State is now offering drive-thru, no-appointment vaccinations at the Six Flags mass vaccination site, Monday - Sunday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Remember, you can also still pre-register with the State to obtain scheduled appointments at Six Flags by visiting covidvax.maryland.gov or calling 1-855-634-6829.
  • Finally, the last day for Cedar Heights Community Center vaccine operations is today, April 30. Health Department staff at Cedar Heights will be used to fill personnel gaps at other vaccination sites and provide additional staffing for our mobile operations, allowing mobile units to be deployed more widely and more often.


Yours in Service,

Angela Alsobrooks
