Description CORONAVIRUS VACCINE INFORMATION: 

UPDATE 1/25/21: Baltimore City is currently in Phase 1C. Older adults in Priority Groups 1A, B, or C without access to the internet can call Maryland Access Point at 410-396-2273 for assistance in registering for the COVID-19 vaccine. Older adults aged 65+ with internet access can fill out a vaccine interest form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfNfn_mjDMXdnqJIlXgqHUCTXAJj0CVR9LDVhkqM0D4YG7-fw/viewform. MAP Ambassadors will call once an appointment becomes available.The Maryland Department of Health's COVID-19 website has begun listing Baltimore City healthcare providers administering vaccinations to for both Priority Group 1A and 1B members. Qualifying residents can sign up to request vaccination appointments directly with area healthcare providers when they become available. Visit http://coronavirus.maryland.gov, click “Find a Vaccine” and use the online search tool to find nearby health providers vaccinating residents. Completing these interest forms does not create an appointment. Due to high demand, the provider will reach out to schedule an appointment, once one is available.  Any questions about the sign-up process should be addressed to individual health care providers via their website. At this time, the Baltimore City Health Department's appointments are still booked through January.

 Baltimore City Public Schools System has partnered with John Hopkins Medicine to begin providing vaccines to teachers and support staff already working in school settings. At this time, BCPSS staff should reach out to their supervisors for more details related to signing up for vaccines through this partnership. 

Governor Hogan announced on Jan 5th that all licensed, registered, and certified health care providers qualify for COVID-19 vaccinations in Phase 1A. To see the full list of applicable positions, visit the website for the Maryland Code for Health Occupations, https://codes.findlaw.com/md/health-occupations/. The Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD) will be administering Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine will be administered in accordance with all applicable federal and state guidelines. This is a two-dose series, separated by 28 days. More information about the vaccine can be found by visiting https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/moderna-covid-19-vaccine.

The vaccine is being offered for free. During the registration process, they ask for insurance type (private insurance, Medicaid/medical assistance, Medicare, or no insurance), but no other insurance information is required, nor is proof of insurance necessary. On the day of the appointment, BCHD will ask to see ID confirming the appointment and that they work in a healthcare setting. Receipt of an email about registering will not satisfy the healthcare identification requirements. BCHD understands that some professionals are not issued a work ID, in those instances they should bring proof of licensure or some other proof of employment. If documentation is not provided, they will be turned away. 

Pre-registration is required, all registrations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Walk-ups will not be accepted. Only the individual being vaccinated should report at the appointment time. Other individuals will be turned away.

Due to limited vaccine supply, BCHD, following MDH guidance, is prioritizing healthcare workers, first responders, and Long Term Care Facility residents who reside or work in Baltimore City. Non-Priority Group 1A member cannot sign up for a COVID-19 Vaccine appointment at this time.
-Hospital-based healthcare workers should reach out to their employers for information on where and how to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
-Long Term Care Facility residents are being vaccinated through partnerships with CVS and Walgreens. 
-Baltimore City First Responders, including EMS, Fire, and Police, should reach out to their supervisors for specific instructions on how to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Registration Frequently Asked Questions
-Only sign-up for one appointment. Signing up for more than one appointment is taking away appointment slots from other individuals that need to be prioritized.
-COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Baltimore City are currently only being provided at the Port Covington location.
-These links are only meant for Priority Group1A members. If individuals sign up who are not part of the priority group, they are taking away appointment slots from those individuals that need to be prioritized.
