    PHOTO RELEASE: MDH Secretary Schrader continues visits to pediatric COVID-19 vaccination clinics with stop at Northwestern High School in Prince George's County

    Baltimore, MD – Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Secretary Dennis R. Schrader yesterday evening visited a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Northwestern High School in Hyattsville, MD. The visit was one of several planned for the coming weeks to see COVID-19 vaccination clinics for 5- to 11-year-olds in operation, meet with local officials, and observe different approaches to organizing clinics.

    “It's encouraging to see the process of vaccinating 5- to 11-year-olds happening so efficiently across the state," said Secretary Schrader. “Our local jurisdictions deserve credit for organizing clinics that suit the needs of their communities and making this life-saving vaccine easily accessible to children and their parents."​

    Prince George's County officials are using high schools and elementary schools in each region of the county to host clinics. The schools' central locations within their communities make them convenient for families with eligible children. At the clinics, parents and family members who need a COVID-19 vaccination are welcome to get a shot alongside their children. 

    “I'm grateful for the partnership between the state and locals in bringing vaccines to youngsters and their families," said Senator Malcom L. Augustine. “The partnership is working well – we have vaccinated close to 3,000 youngsters so far in Prince George's County – and I am proud to be a part of it."

Askew. “It's exciting to see public health in action, and we look forward to continuing work with our local partners and the state to keep everyone in Maryland as safe and as healthy as possible."
