The MDPCP Vaccination Program is Underway!
The Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) is a statewide advanced primary care program with 562 participating practice sites. On March 15, 2021 the Maryland Department of Health launched a pilot to demonstrate the use of primary care practices as points of delivery for older Marylanders and to validate the providers’ ability to more broadly distribute vaccines. MDPCP practices across the state are now playing an instrumental role in vaccinating those with underlying medical conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19 illness throughout Phase 2.
