April 2 COVID-19 Vaccine Bulletin

Prince George’s County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • I am happy to announce we have a new vaccination site thanks to FEMA, the White House, the State and other partners. The new vaccination site, operated by FEMA, will be located at the Greenbelt Metro Station and will open April 7, 2021.
    • You must pre-register with the State of Maryland to receive an appointment at this site. I’m encouraging residents to pre-register online for this new site as soon as possible at maryland.gov, and select Greenbelt Metro Station as a preferred site. You can also call the State’s Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to pre-register.
    • Residents who have already pre-registered with the State and live in nearby zip codes DO NOT need to pre-register again with the State to receive an appointment.
    • The Community Vaccination Center will be a walk-up site, available by appointment only.
  • We have hit another milestone this week, providing over 295,000 vaccines to 208,112 County residents through our Health Department, pharmacies, hospitals and other sites. We will likely exceed 300,000 vaccinations provided this weekend.
  • As a reminder, the County recently moved to scheduling vaccine appointments for individuals on our pre-registration list who are eligible in Phase 2B of the vaccine distribution plan. Individuals in Phase 2B include:
    • Residents 16 and older with medical conditions that increase their risk for severe COVID-19 illness.
    • Residents 16 and older with disabilities who are receiving SSI or SSDI benefits, Maryland Medicaid EID individuals, Maryland Medicaid REM recipients, and Marylanders receiving TDAP benefits.
    • Residents receiving long-term services and support through the state’s Medicaid waiver and state plan services.
  • 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 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.
  • Finally, the Sports & Learning vaccination clinic will be operational next week after being closed for maintenance, which will increase the available capacity. A small, temporary clinic was in place at Sports & Learning this week while preparing for the reopening next week.

Yours in Service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive  


Vaccine Supply & Administration

Vaccine supply
  • Monday, March 29, was a new single-day high for our Health Department with nearly 2,600 vaccinations, followed by nearly 2,400 provided on Tuesday, March 30.

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 8,790 first and single doses next week.
