Governor Hogan, County Executive Alsobrooks Announce Expansion of Priority Vaccine Appointments for Prince George’s County Residents
ANNAPOLIS, MD (STL.News) Governor Larry Hogan and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced that, beginning next week, the state will set aside at least 300 priority appointments per day—a total of 2,100 per week—for individuals on the county’s pre-registration list at the Six Flags America mass vaccination site. This is an increase from 500 appointments per week that have been reserved for county residents since the site opened in early February.
“With vaccine supply from the federal government set to increase in the coming weeks, we are able to further expand priority appointments for Prince Georgians,” said Governor Hogan. “Through our vaccine equity plan, we are providing county residents with more appointments at Six Flags, a new clinic opening up in Glenarden, ongoing clinics at local pharmacies, and pop-up clinics for underserved communities. I want to commend the county executive and her team for all the steps they have taken to increase the vaccination rate in the county.”
“We have been working diligently in the county to expand vaccination access for our residents, and these new partnerships and increased access to appointments will help ensure vaccines are being distributed equitably to the hardest-hit jurisdiction in the state,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks.
