Maryland has opened pre-registration for the Montgomery County Mass Vaccination Site which will open in Germantown.

Montgomery College’s Germantown campus site will open on Wednesday as a county-run clinic on a smaller scale of 1,500 doses per day.

On April 5, the site will ramp up operations to become a mass vaccination site in partnership with the state, county, Holy Cross Hospital and college.

By April 15, the site should be able to deliver 3,000 doses per day, or approximately 21,000 doses per week.

Maryland and the county are currently inoculating residents and eligible workers in Phases 1, 2A, and 2B, which include healthcare workers, first responders, residents 60 and over, and residents 16 and over with underlying health or disability issues.

Pre-registration places an eligible person’s information in the state system and does not guarantee an immediate appointment. When a vaccine dose is available for the pre-registered group of individuals, an invitation to register for an appointment will be sent.

Eligible residents and workers can pre-register at COVIDvax.maryland.gov or call 1-855-634-6829.

The state’s other mass vaccination sites are at:
● Six Flags America in Prince George County
● Baltimore Convention Center
● M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore
● Regency Furniture Stadium in Charles County
● Wicomico Youth & Civic Center in Salisbury
● Hagerstown Premium Outlets

The additional sites planned are:
● Montgomery College Campus in Germantown (opens as a county site Wednesday, then state mass vaccination site April 5)
● Timonium Fairgrounds in Baltimore County by April 5
● Anne Arundel County before April 12
● Frederick County before April 12
● Howard County by end of April

The locations of most of the new sites have yet to be announced.
