Starting Monday January 24, hours for Covid testing and vaccination at the Health Department's Fox Run Shopping Center site (713 Solomons Island Rd. North in Prince Frederick) will expand.
People with high-risk underlying health conditions should contact their personal healthcare provider before self-scheduling an appointment for Covid testing. Those at higher-risk may be able to get a test and start with treatment recommendations more quickly through their doctor’s office. Early medical attention for higher-risk individuals can be lifesaving. All tests at the Health Department test site are PCR, which are more reliable than rapid antigen tests. PCR tests are sent to a licensed medical laboratory with results typically available in 1-2 days. Testing will take place Monday-Friday from 9:00 am- 1:30 pm. Testing is by appointment only. Information on scheduling an appointment can be found at: https://www.calvertcountycovid19.com/testing-sites Covid vaccinations will be administered Monday-Friday from 2:30- 4:00 pm each day. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccinations are available. One day each week, vaccinations will be given until 6:00 pm. Dates for evening hours and registration for all vaccination clinics can be found on the Health Department's website: https://www.calvertcountycovid19.com/vaccination-registration Periodic Saturday vaccination clinics will be held at the Fox Run location. Health Department nurses also administer vaccinations at various sites around the county via its outreach van. Information on weekend and outreach clinics can also be found on the Health Department's website listed above. Booster vaccinations have been extremely effective in preventing serious illness and hospitalization. If you have questions about boosters or getting a Covid vaccine for the first time, please contact your primary care provider.
