A new Montgomery County Vaccine Distribution dashboard has been launched to provide a more in-depth look about vaccinations, including updated figures on how many residents have been vaccinated. The dashboard includes the information that the County has passed the milestone of having more than 115,000 County residents receive at least one COVID-19 vaccination.
Vaccine supply continues to be limited at all venues in the County and the demand for vaccines continues to be high. Updated information will help residents follow vaccine availability and who has been vaccinated to date. The dashboard also includes information on race/ethnicity, age group and gender of those vaccinated.
Updated COVID-19 statistics and information now includes:
- More than 115,000 residents in Montgomery County have been vaccinated. The County has vaccinated more residents with a first dose than any other jurisdiction in Maryland.
- The County’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS—or the County health department) is prioritizing residents who are 75 and older (Priority Group 1B, Tier 1) and frontline health care workers, public safety and first responders (Group 1A).
- The County’s vaccination clinics are by appointment only. There are no walk-in vaccination sites.
- Residents are asked not to forward appointment scheduling links to friends and family. These links are intended only for the direct recipient.
- Preregistration is not a vaccination appointment. Preregistration places a person in the queue by priority group. When vaccine doses arrive, the County health department will contact residents from the preregistration list and let them know they can make an appointment.
- Once preregistered, individuals will receive notice to make an appointment by phone call or email directly from DHHS. Email invitations will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hospitals and healthcare agencies that have been vaccinating residents and will be receiving future vaccines include:
- Adventist HealthCare
- Holy Cross Hospital
- Kaiser Permanente
- MedStar Health
- Suburban Hospital, a subsidiary of Johns Hopkins (Suburban Hospital is prioritizing existing patients in the Hopkins system).
