County to Close Germantown Mass Vaccination Site and Move Several Vaccination Sites

Upcounty Regional Services Center

The declining demand for COVID-19 vaccinations will lead to Montgomery County closing its mass vaccination site on the Germantown campus of Montgomery College as of Saturday, July 3. A new vaccination site of more appropriate operation size will open on Tuesday, July 6, at the Upcounty Regional Service Center.

In addition to several popup sites scheduled weekly, the County will offer vaccinations at the Dennis Avenue Health Center in Silver Spring and an additional site will be determined in the coming days. Residents who received their first vaccine dose at the Germantown site can receive their second vaccination dose at the Upcounty Regional Service Center.

“While we have made major progress in vaccinating residents and we are nearing 70 percent of our residents who are fully vaccinated, we want to reach every single eligible person and get them protected,” said Travis Gayles, the County’s health officer.

Vaccinations can be obtained starting July 6 at:
  • Upcounty Regional Service Center, 12900 Middlebrook Rd., Germantown. Open seven days each week. 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Dennis Avenue Health Center, 2000 Dennis Ave., Silver Spring. Open seven days a week. 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Appointments are not required at the County-operated clinics but are recommended to save time with registration and consent forms.

COVID-19 testing also will be available at the vaccination clinics.
