HANOVER, MD — The Anne Arundel County Department of Health on Tuesday opened a coronavirus vaccination site at Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover. This is one of the four county-sponsored clinics planned in Anne Arundel.
'Community support has always been a part of our DNA,' Maryland Live! General Manager Anthony Faranca said. 'This is another part of that commitment.'
The shot will also be available at these places:
- Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold
- Baymeadow Clinic in Glen Burnie
- Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis
The county will announce more locations, mobile clinics and pop-up sites as vaccine rollout continues. Inoculation providers ask that residents only show up to a clinic if they have an appointment scheduled for that day.
On Friday, Anne Arundel County opened preregistration for the vaccine. All county residents can head to aacounty.org/covidvax or call 410-222-3663 on weekdays to sign-up for their shot.
Registrants will give their name, contact information and occupation. Health officials will reach out to schedule an appointment whenever they are eligible. Still, it's going to take some time before the immunization is widespread.
'Please be patient,' Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman said during a livestream from the casino's clinic. 'There are hundreds of thousands of county residents who need to be vaccinated.'
Maryland is vaccinating about 15,000 residents-per-week. The state tallies the number of Marylanders who have gotten the immunization on this website.
So far, 20,805 Anne Arundel County residents have gotten their first shot. That's 3.59 percent of the population.
The second dose has reached 1,822 residents. That's 0.32 percent of the population.
Maryland focused its early immunizations on residents and staff of long-term care facilities, health care workers and first responders. That initial wave was the state's first of five stages of inoculation (1A, 1B, 1C, 2 and 3).
The state entered phase 1B of vaccination on Monday. That enables these Marylanders to get the inoculation:
- Anybody age 75 and older
- Residents of congregate living facilities
- School staff
- Those needed for continuity of government
- Child-care providers
- High-risk inmates
Maryland will begin stage 1C on Jan. 25. Residents age 65 to 74 will be eligible in that period, as will essential workers in lab services, agriculture, manufacturing and the postal service.
