Montgomery County continues to be in the “low” community transmission rate for COVID-19. However, COVID remains a concern as new strains become prevalent. Updated vaccines are now available as boosters.Montgomery County has done very well in terms of the number of residents vaccinated, but there is still work to do on getting every eligible resident to get the latest booster vaccines. Those who have stopped at just the first two doses are two and a half times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID than people who have received booster shots.
County-sponsored clinics have the vaccine, as do many pharmacies and retailers. Anyone 12 and older who had their last vaccine dose at least two months ago should get the booster shot. Make an appointment for a County-sponsored clinic at www.GoVaxMoco.com. Maryland’s vaccine locator shows other sites in the community offering the vaccine.
