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, whether you have insurance or not.

Where to Get Vaccinated

The COVID vaccine and boosters are available at pharmacies, vaccination clinics and other medical facilities.  Use the Maryland Department of Health website to find a location offering the dose you need for your age. Many locations offer vaccinations to walk-ins without an appointment.
