COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments

CDC now recommends that children between the ages of 5 and 11 years receive the Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 Vaccine. Due to the different dose, we will hold separate clinics for this age group. A parent or guardian must accompany a child to the vaccination clinic. Links to schedule appointments will be provided below when the vaccine has been authorized for this age group.  FCPS will also be holding vaccination clinics in schools. Check Find Out First for the school schedule. For local pharmacies and other locations offering vaccine for children 5-11, check out http://covidvax.maryland.gov/.

Frederick County Survey on Vaccine Interest

Thank you for your participation in our survey on vaccine interest! Our English survey received 20,580 results and our Spanish survey received 269. Over 50% of people who responded said that they were planning on getting the vaccine as soon as it became available to them. Of those respondents who said they weren’t sure or were not planning on getting the vaccine immediate, the most common concerns were about safety and side effects. There were thousands of comments written in, and we will use the information from the survey to help develop our messaging to make sure we’re answering the questions that you have asked.
