Prince George's County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • There are more ways to get vaccinated than ever before, and we are putting our outreach efforts into overdrive to help spread the word and put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Join us, along with radio personality Joe Clair and the Commission for Fathers, Men and Boys, on May 14 for our 24-hour Vaccine-a-thon at the Wayne Curry Sports & Learning Complex. The event is open to ages 16 and over and will feature prizes, special guests, snacks and give-a-ways. Secure your spot for the Vaccine-a-thon by booking an appointment at bit.ly/24HourMDVax. Walk-ups are also welcomed. Please note, minors under the age of 18 must have parental consent and be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • The County Health Department is also extending clinic hours and appointment availability at the following County-operated COVID-19 vaccination clinics this weekend:
    • Friday, May 7, 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM
      • Wayne K. Curry Sports & Learning Complex

  • Appointments for these extended-hour clinics are required. Individuals can schedule their own first-dose appointments by visiting mypgc.us/ProudToBeProtected and selecting one of the clinics on May 7, 8, or 9.
    • The clinics are open to County residents 16 and older. Those who are 16 or 17 years old must have a parent or guardian with them at the clinic to fill out a consent form. For more information about the County’s vaccination operations, please visit our COVID-19 vaccine webpage mypgc.us/COVIDvaccine
  • As a reminder, on Tuesday I announced the launch of a Countywide Vaccine Distribution and Education Initiative that will conduct door-to-door, phone, and text outreach to County residents to help provide information on COVID-19 vaccines and resources related to the If someone from the outreach team contacts you, please answer the door or the phone, as they will also be able to help you schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

    • Targeted communities will receive the full suite of remote and in-person contact. In total, canvassers will knock on 266,352 doors and are currently targeting the following communities for door-knocking: Bladensburg, Temple Hills, Capitol Heights, Hyattsville, Oxon Hill, College Park, District Heights, Riverdale, Suitland, Langley Park, and Mount Rainier.
    • The canvassing program will also reach the entire County remotely via phone banking and text banking, making over 1.3 million calls and sending over 500,000 text messages throughout the duration of the initiative.
  • Lastly, I’m proud 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, over 582,000 total vaccinations have been provided to County residents and over 250,000 residents are now fully vaccinated. 354,218 residents have received at least one dose of a vaccine, which represents 49.0% of residents ages 16 or older.


Yours in Service,

Extended Hours

24 Hour Vaccine-a-thon

Prince George’s County Vaccine Equity Team

  • The Hyattsville area has been a top priority because of how densely populated the area is, how hard those zip codes were impacted by COVID-19 infections, and lagging vaccination rates as we ramped up our vaccine distribution efforts.
  • However, since April, all four zip codes associated with Hyattsville (20783, 20784, 20785, and 20782) have moved from either the top or middle of our top 10 areas of need for vaccine resources to the bottom or outside the top 10. Currently, 20783 is the only zip code in the top 10 (it was number 1 last month). The following are the most notable changes since March 28:

    • 20783 (Hyattsville) moved from #1 to #8
    • 20737 (Riverdale) moved from #3 to #9
    • 20722 (Brentwood) moved from #12 to #19
  • This was done by ensuring Federally Qualified Health Centers were equipped to distribute vaccine, trusted community leaders helping to amplify the need to be vaccinated, mobile units being targeted to specific areas, and our state and third-party partners following the County’s lead in directing resources to these areas.
  • The data reflects the work being done to pierce densely populated areas and shows that efforts are paying off. The Vaccine Equity Team will continue to focus on the central and southern Inner Beltway communities like Oxon Hill, District Heights, Capitol Heights and Suitland. These communities have steadily risen on the list and will receive greater prioritization now.
