Maryland Department of Health launches new website listing vaccination clinics at local health departments statewide
Baltimore, MD – The Maryland Department of Health has launched health.maryland.gov/vaccines, which lists vaccination clinics offered by local health departments statewide, including children’s back-to-school and COVID-19 clinics. The new site will also list flu vaccination clinics when available.
Health officials urge parents to take advantage of these vaccination clinics or talk to their health care provider about staying up-to-date on their children’s routine vaccinations as the new school year approaches.
Maryland maintains specific vaccination requirements for participation in child care and public schools, and parents statewide have done a great job keeping their children protected with required vaccinations. In 2022-2023, Maryland reported vaccination rates of 98-99% of all students reporting.
For more information about how Marylanders can protect themselves against preventable disease with vaccinations, visit health.maryland.gov/immunization.
The Maryland Department of Health is dedicated to protecting and improving the health and safety of all Marylanders through disease prevention, access to care, quality management and community engagement.
