Vaccine Supply is Small and Unpredictable


Johns Hopkins Medicine — as well as health systems and health agencies everywhere — is faced with a significant and unpredictable vaccine supply that is limiting our ability to offer as many vaccination appointments as we are eager to provide, even as eligibility expands.

As long as we have supply, we will continue to vaccinate as many eligible patients and community members as we are authorized to do so. However, we encourage individuals to take advantage of all vaccine options available in their state and local areas.

All vaccine information.
