Vaccines are here to help protect against serious illness from COVID-19. Due to limited initial supply, health care workers, first responders, and residents and staff of long-term care facilities will be the first to receive the vaccine. Supplies will continually increase in the weeks and months that follow. 

 

Calvert County residents who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccination may pre-register online beginning Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 10 a.m. Any Calvert County resident age 18 and older may pre-register at ww.CalvertCountyMd.gov/Vaccine.

 

Residents are strongly encouraged to use the online pre-registration form for COVID vaccinations. An information call center is also available to assist residents without internet access who wish to pre-register for vaccination. For questions or assistance, residents may call 410-535-0218, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
