Vaccine-a-thon May 14

Nicole Williams Newsletter May 2021

Dear Neighbors and Friends –

Spring has sprung. I have really enjoyed taking the time to reconnect with so many of you across the District now that the legislative session is over.  The pandemic is not over but it is great to see so many residents share that they have gotten vaccinated.

Last week Governor Hogan announced a new project, Project Bounce Bank which will expand the Maryland Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs in every County prioritizing Title 1 school districts and rural communities to expand youth development program, positive mentorship programs and regional mental health crisis teams that will collaborate with local school systems in order to provide on-the-ground crisis and technical assistance to help our students that have been impacted by the pandemic.

Residents can now get vaccinated without an appointment at any of the State’s 13mmass vaccination sites or at the FEMA vaccination site at Greenbelt Metro Station. Also, in an effort to ensure the safety of our nursing homes the State is now requiring all nursing homes to report vaccination data for residents and staff on a weekly basis. Additionally, the State is providing additional resources for nursing homes to ensure that all staff and residents are vaccinated.

Since our last newsletter, our County Executive Angela Alsobrooks 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 to County resident to help provide information on COVID-19 vaccines and resources related to virus. So far over 582,000 total vaccinations have been provided to County Residents and over 250,000 residents are now fully vaccinated. There are a number of County run locations where someone can get a vaccine, even without an appointment.

In addition to the good news about the vaccines, last week I had the honor to join County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Monia Goldson, Board of Education members and County Council members for the ground breaking of two new middle schools here in District 22, the new William Wirt Middle School and the new Glenridge Middle School both slatted to open in time for the 2023 school year.  

With the warm spring weather and improving COVID-19 numbers, I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel we have been in for over a year.
