Get a COVID Vaccine and Booster
The best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is to get the vaccine and a booster as soon as you are eligible.
People six months of age and older can be vaccinated. Vaccine and booster recommendations are based on your age, the vaccine you were first given and when you received your last dose. Vaccines and boosters are free, regardless of whether or not you have health insurance.
At this time, the University of Maryland Children's Hospital is no longer offering COVID-19 vaccines to the public.
