As Maryland advances in COVID-19 vaccine phases, counties are distributing the vaccine accordingly. This week (1/18), eligible groups were expanded to include all Marylanders 75 and older, as well as anyone of any age living in assisted living or independent living facilities, and developmental disabilities and behavioral health group homes. Those now eligible also include K-12 teachers, education staff, and child care providers. Additionally, on Monday, January 25, the state will enter Phase 1C, which includes Maryland residents ages 65 to 74; public health and safety workers not previously covered; and essential workers in lab services, food and agriculture production, manufacturing, the U.S. Postal Service, public transit, and grocery stores.

For NCIA employees who are seeking the vaccine, here’s how to find a vaccine in your area:

Please note you must register for an appointment in order to receive the vaccine.

Items you will need to take with you:

-Your ID (your NCIA issued work badge is also recommended)

-Employer letter (contact HR) – kglover@ncianet.org

BALTIMORE CITY

As of Jan. 15, every Baltimore City COVID-19 vaccine appointment in the state’s scheduling system has been taken through the end of January. Senior citizens older than 65 who have internet access can fill out a vaccine interest and contact information form here. The city announced a phone number that senior citizens can call for assistance in scheduling an appointment when they become available: 410-396-CARE (2273).

The mayor announced Jan. 20 that the city will be moving its mass vaccine clinic operation the week of Jan. 25 to Baltimore City Community College, which is more easily accessible by transit. If you received your first dose of the coronavirus vaccine at Port Covington, the Baltimore City Health Department will be emailing you about your appointment for your second dose. Officials said they will be emailing everyone no later than Friday. City officials said if you made an appointment to get your second dose at Port Covington, your appointment time will not change, just the location will change.

BALTIMORE COUNTY

Baltimore County set up a vaccine registration request form. Residents can fill out the form to request a vaccination. When the resident is eligible to receive the vaccine, and the vaccine supply is available, they will then be contacted by health officials who will provide information about how to schedule an appointment. Filling out the form does not create an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. Only people who have set up an appointment can get a vaccine. No walk-ups are accepted, and residents cannot set up an appointment at vaccination sites.

CARROLL COUNTY

Carroll County residents who are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine are asked to complete an interest form applicable to eligibility. The interest form is NOT a registration form. The Carroll County Health Department will contact residents who complete the form to provide additional information on registration as it becomes available. Residents are asked to complete one form per person. Resident should make sure they are filling out the correct form. Residents will need to bring a photo ID to vaccination clinics.

HARFORD COUNTY

According to the Harford County Health Department, Phase 1B vaccinations are set to begin Jan. 19. Anyone in groups 1A, 1B, and 1C should go to the Health Department’s website to pre-register for a vaccine appointment. Residents who are pre-registered will be contacted by a Health Department employee in the coming weeks to schedule an appointment. Harford County is pre-screening for eligibility to help to expedite the scheduling of appointments. The screening form prequalifies residents for upcoming vaccination clinics. The form will NOT register residents for vaccination. Residents can access the form HERE.

HOWARD COUNTY

All Howard County residents who are 75 and older who want to be vaccinated should complete this online questionnaire and provide their contact information to the Health Department. Residents will then get a separate email with appointment and registration information. After prioritizing most vulnerable adults age 75 and older, the Health Department will begin to open vaccinations to Howard County residents ages 65 to 74 in February. Howard County residents ages 65 to 74 who wish to join a separate contact list for Phase 1C vaccine availability should complete this survey.
