Maryland health officials say, while the coronavirus vaccination rate continues to increase, supply from the federal government remains extremely limited. 



Therefore, vaccinations are by appointment only. 



Eligible residents can receive a vaccine at local hospitals, health departments, or neighborhood pharmacies.

In an effort to reach more residents, health officials have begun opening a series of mass vaccination sites. 



It's normal to have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, says Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Kathleen Page. "Based on information from large clinical trials, we know that the vaccine is safe and it's effective."
