Maryland: COVID-19 Vaccination Information for Patients and the Public

 

Vaccine Supply Update

Provider receiving a COVID-19 vaccine

The state of Maryland is in phase 2B of its COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan. Phase 2B expands eligibility to Maryland residents age 16 and older who have a qualifying medical condition or disability.

Johns Hopkins Medicine is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to our patients who meet this expanded eligibility criteria. A patient is anyone who has received care at a Johns Hopkins Medicine facility within the last three years. We will also continue to vaccinate our patients and our health care personnel who meet earlier eligibility criteria set by the state of Maryland, and work with partners in the community to distribute the vaccine to eligible individuals based on state guidance.

If you meet current eligibility criteria, you can log into your MyChart account to add yourself to Johns Hopkins Medicine’s vaccination waitlist. We will notify eligible patients on our vaccine waitlist by email, text message or phone call when we are able to offer a vaccination appointment.

While our supply is limited, we are doing our best to vaccinate as many of our eligible patients as quickly and equitably as possible.

Vaccination Locations in Maryland

 

Vaccine Availability

Because vaccine supply may vary, we encourage those who are eligible to receive the vaccine to visit the state of Maryland’s vaccination website to learn where you can get the COVID-19 vaccine. You can also call the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MDGOVAX (1-855-634-6829) to schedule your vaccination at a mass vaccination site or to get information on vaccines and providers in the area. If you are offered the COVID-19 vaccine by another vaccination site, please take it. You should not wait to get the vaccine from Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations at this time. We must keep our phone lines clear for people with urgent and acute medical care needs. When we can schedule by phone, we will update this website with the relevant information.

Currently eligible patients ages 16 and 17 will receive a vaccination appointment when we have Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine available because this is the only vaccine currently authorized for this age group. All other adult patients will be offered one of three authorized vaccines: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. Johns Hopkins Medicine views all three available COVID-19 vaccines as highly effective at preventing serious disease, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Patients cannot choose which type of vaccine they receive.

Appointment Information

Currently, Johns Hopkins Medicine is selecting and inviting eligible vaccine recipients to schedule an appointment through a computer-randomized lottery process. Selection is based on available vaccine supply and a person’s eligibility in accordance with state and district directives. Patients who meet current eligibility criteria will be contacted via email or phone when it is their turn to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment in MyChart. For the purposes of vaccination, a patient is anyone who has received care at a Johns Hopkins Medicine facility within the last three years.

If you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, have sought care at a Johns Hopkins Medicine location within the last three years, and wish to get the COVID-19 vaccine from Johns Hopkins Medicine, please activate your MyChart account if you have not already done so.

Appointments are required. Walk-ins are not allowed. Scheduling tickets, which will be received from Johns Hopkins Medicine, are required in order to book a vaccination appointment. Scheduling tickets are not transferrable.

The vaccine is available only at our designated vaccination sites.

We are working to distribute the vaccine to all eligible patients as quickly and equitably as possible. Thank you for your patience while we work through the large volume of patients who are interested in being vaccinated and as the vaccine supply provided to us remains limited.

Safety Measures

It takes at least two weeks beyond the second dose of vaccine for two-dose regimens and beyond vaccination for one-dose regimens for full protection to develop. Even after full vaccination, infection prevention measures such as wearing a mask, physical distancing and frequent hand-washing are still very important since you might be able to pick up the virus, carry it and give it to others. Learn more from our infographic, COVID-19 Vaccines: What You Need to Know.
