Montgomery College Germantown in Maryland Set to Become Mass Vaccination Site While State’s COVID-19 Cases Trend Upward

The Maryland Department of Health plans to begin administering 3,000 vaccine doses a day later this week at its Montgomery College Germantown site.

Maryland reached a new record over the weekend administering over 78,000 shots, but the state’s 14-day average of new COVID-19 cases rose by nearly 500.

The move comes amid Maryland’s Phase 2B stage of vaccinations which opens vaccine eligiblity to citizens 16 and older with select medical conditions. All citizens, including healthy adults, will become eligible on April 27th in the state’s third phase.

According to the state’s health department, hospitalizations have increased at a steady pace since mid-March. Over 30 percent of the state is estimated to be at least partially immunized.
