UMMS and its affiliated hospitals are distributing the COVID vaccines in phases outlined by the State of Maryland.

No COVID vaccines are approved for anyone under the age of 16. Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for people age 16-17.


According to the state's phased distribution plan, all Marylanders 16 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. Anyone age 16-17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to be vaccinated. The parent or guardian will sign the consent form.
