COVID-19 RESPONSE

The M&T Bank Stadium Mass Vaccination Site will offer same-day, walk-up vaccinations beginning Friday, April 9. A limited number of 200 walk-up vaccination slots will be available each day from 10 am to 2 pm, seven days a week, excluding Orioles day game dates when parking lots are expected to be full.

Walk-up times and capacity are likely to change over time. Any updates to scheduling, in addition to public transit information, can be found on the University of Maryland Medical System's main M&T Bank Stadium Mass Vaccination Site webpage at umms.org/StadiumVax.

No appointments are necessary for the walk-up slots, and individuals should be prepared to wait, depending on demand. The line for walk-ups will be located on the Northwest side of the M&T Bank stadium, which faces Hamburg Street. Signage will direct walk-up patients to the correct area. Free parking for all individuals seeking vaccines will continue to be available in Lot B, also located on the Northwest side of the stadium.

Marylanders are still encouraged to directly schedule their appointments online at www.umms.org/StadiumVax or by phone at 410-779-9507. Alternatively, Marylanders may use the statewide pre-registration system by calling 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829) or visiting https://onestop.md.gov/preregistration.

"Walk-ups offer an option for Marylanders who have difficulty accessing a computer or phone, or who prefer it to direct scheduling or pre-registration," said Jason Marx, MD, the University of Maryland Medical System Incident Commander for the M&T Bank Stadium Mass Vaccination Site.

The M&T Bank Stadium Mass Vaccination Site is a partnership between the University of Maryland Medical System, Maryland Department of Health, Maryland National Guard and Maryland Stadium Authority. Together, the four entities transformed the stadium into a mass vaccination site, spanning over 50,000 feet of clinical space. It is one of Maryland's largest vaccination sites and one of 20 NFL stadiums that have been repurposed as vaccination sites to end the COVID pandemic.
