A Message from 

Congressman David Trone

Dear fellow Marylanders,

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you who have made such immense sacrifices over the past year to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. From the healthcare heroes, to the frontline workers, to the people of all ages doing their part simply by wearing a mask and socially distancing, these commitments to each other are truly making a difference. While COVID-19 continues to spread and we still face risks to our health and safety, I ask that we all please continue to take measures to protect ourselves and others. Together, I know that we will get through this. 

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of researchers and scientists, we have thousands of safe, effective vaccines being provided to people across the state every day. These vaccines are the light at the end of a very dark tunnel, and I join you in eager anticipation of a day when all of us are vaccinated and can resume our normal activities. However, this will take time. 

While my office has no direct involvement in the State of Maryland’s vaccine distribution process and we cannot change, alter, or speed up the process by which Marylanders are receiving the vaccine, I am working tirelessly to encourage efficient and equitable distribution.

In this guide, you will find the most up to date information about the state’s plan, including resources to get more information, organizations providing vaccines, and ways to receive updates about your status. Please note that this information is rapidly changing, so information listed can only be guaranteed as accurate at the time of publication.

Please continue to stay safe and care for one another. If my office can be of assistance to you, don’t hesitate to contact us at info@davidtrone.com or 240-907-2392.

Sincerely,

David Trone

Member of Congress

 

 

Reminders about the Vaccination Process

We understand how frustrating and often confusing this process can be, and our top priority is making sure you are informed and easing this complicated process to the best of our ability. This guide has been compiled for that purpose, but please know that this information is changing extremely frequently. While we do our best to keep the information accurate at all times, we can only guarantee that it is correct at the time of publication.

  • If no appointments are available, check back frequently. There is no way to predict when more appointments will become available.
  • We are here to listen. If you are having problems, we will do our best to solve them. If we can’t solve them, we will share your concerns with the appropriate entities and leaders. We encourage you to do the same.
  • While my team and I will do our best to answer your questions, decisions about the vaccine rollout ultimately are made by Governor Hogan and the Maryland Department of Health.
