Prince George’s County Expands Its Mobile Vaccination Capacity
County adds three vehicles to its fleet, significantly increasing its ability to reach residents amid nationwide Delta variant surge
LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County has added three new vehicles to its mobile COVID-19 vaccination units, significantly expanding its ability to reach homebound residents and others in the community. The addition of these mobile units allows the County to more quickly schedule vaccinations for homebound residents while continuing to schedule vaccine events in the community.
“Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have said that we need to meet residents where they are. We have taken many steps to reduce barriers to vaccination, and this is yet another example of our commitment to vaccine equity,” said County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “It is not always easy for residents to travel to get a COVID-19 vaccine, but it is important that all residents get one. We have been bringing the vaccines directly to residents and I’m proud to say that we will now be able to do that in even greater numbers.”
The expansion of the mobile vaccine units comes as the County begins to administer COVID-19 boosters to immunocompromised residents, along with a major push to vaccinate school-aged children ages 12-18.
Prince George’s County was one of the first to deploy mobile vaccine units to target communities that are lagging in vaccination rates, part of the Alsobrooks Administration’s commitment to ensuring that COVID-19 vaccines are distributed equitably. As of September 1, 2021, 76.9% of residents 12 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, 90.5% of seniors (ages 65 and older) have received at least one dose.

“We are Prince George’s Proud to work with Six Flags America to promote vaccination efforts throughout the County,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “While we have made significant strides in our efforts to vaccinate all of our eligible residents, we recognize that we must also continue to work to reach our most vulnerable populations. We hope that offering families a much-needed day of fun and excitement at Six Flags will encourage more of our residents to get vaccinated and be Proud to be Protected against COVID-19.”

“Six Flags America is proud to support vaccination efforts in Prince George’s County,” said Six Flags America Park President Richard Pretlow. “After serving as a mass vaccination site this spring—resulting in nearly 340,000 vaccines delivered—we are hopeful that this ticket donation will help reach underrepresented communities. We are excited to offer a day of thrills at Six Flags to help encourage residents to get vaccinated.” Residents should visit mypgc.us/COVIDVaccine for clinic operating hours or to schedule an appointment at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex.
