    GoVAX Mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinics serve Garrett County residents

    Baltimore, MD – Garrett County Health Officer Bob Stephens, State Senator George Edwards, Drs. Marlana Bollinger and Ken Buczynski from Wellspring Family Medicine, and Jonathan Dayton from Mountain Laurel Medical Center today visited the mobile COVID-19 vaccination unit in Oakland, MD. The unit provides free COVID-19 vaccinations to residents of the local area through Maryland’s GoVAX Mobile program.

    The mobile vaccination unit is located at the GCC Technologies building at 65 Enterprise Dr. in the Southern Garrett Business & Technology Park off of Route 135, across from 84 Lumber.

    (L to R) Garrett County Health Officer Bob Stephens, Public Information Officer Diane Lee, and Senator George Edwards were among visitors to the GoVAX Mobile site in Oakland today

    “Our GoVAX Mobile program is a critical tool for helping to ensure that a vaccine is available to every Marylander who wants one, regardless of where they live,” said MDH Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “GoVAX Mobile allows us to expand access and bring vaccines directly into communities across the state, including predominantly rural areas like Garrett County.”

    Clinics will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today through Saturday, May 1 and again from May 4 through May 8. Walk-ins will be accepted as long as vaccine supply allows each day. Patients can also register for an appointment at GarrettHealth.org. For assistance making an appointment, call the Garrett County Health Department at 301-334-7698.

    “The best way to get back to normal is to get vaccinated,” said Health Officer Stephens. “Get vaccinated for yourself and for the community.”

    The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), local health departments, and Maryland’s Vaccine Equity Task Force all play a role in managing statewide GoVAX Mobile activities. 

    The program utilizes specialized vaccination vehicles designed to support clinics of 250 or more doses per day as well as community outreach teams that travel in vans to establish smaller clinics providing 100 or more doses per day.

    At each destination, local health departments work directly with local populations including vulnerable and hard-to-reach residents to make vaccines available. The mobile vaccination unit that is currently located in Oakland will move to another jurisdiction after May 8. 



    The Maryland Department of Health is dedicated to protecting and improving the health and safety of all Marylanders through disease prevention, access to care, quality management and community engagement.
