I need help registering. Who can I call?

Calvert County Government has reopened an information call center to assist eligible residents who wish to register for a booster or third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine through the Calvert County Health Department. 

For questions or assistance scheduling an appointment, residents may call 410-535-0218, Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please be prepared to share which vaccine you initially received.

Who is eligible?

At least four months must have passed since the second dose of the initial vaccine to be eligible for a booster. Residents who originally received the Johnson & Johnson vaccination must have a note from their personal physician or nurse practitioner recommending a booster dose. In addition, anyone 16 and older who works in one of the following prioritized job classifications is strongly encouraged to take advantage of the increased protection of a booster dose:

  • Nursing home and assisted living staff
  • Healthcare workers
  • First responders
  • People who work or live in congregate residential facilities 
  • Public transit and school bus drivers
  • Teachers/classroom staff and daycare staff

I received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine originally. Can I get a second dose? 

Citizens who originally received the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccination must have a note from their personal physician or nurse practitioner recommending a booster dose.

VACCINE

How does the COVID-19 vaccine work?

The COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19. For more information, please visit the CDC website on how vaccines work.

Are the COVID-19 Vaccines safe?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines which have been shown to be safe and effective as determined by data and findings from large clinical trials. Please visit vaccine safety for additional information.

Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

 No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.

 When will kids 5 years and older be approved?

While we cannot predict when approval for younger age groups might occur, the Calvert County Health Department has partnered with local health care providers and will announce vaccination plans for children 5 years and older when official approval is given
