GoVAX Mobile vaccine clinic in Dorchester County through Sunday

Baltimore, MD – Dorchester County Health Officer Roger Harrell and Deputy Health Officer Dr. Casey Scott visited the mobile COVID-19 vaccination unit in Hurlock, MD yesterday. The unit provides free COVID-19 vaccinations through Maryland’s GoVAX Mobile program.

The mobile vaccination unit is located at 102 School St. in Hurlock, across the street from the Hurlock Volunteer Fire Company. 

Clinics will take place everyday until Sunday, May 9, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted as long as vaccine supply allows each day. Patients can also register for an appointment by calling the Dorchester County Health Department at 410-228-3223.

“Our GoVAX Mobile teams are coordinating with local partners across the state to deliver vaccines wherever we can meet a need,” said Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “Mobile vaccination clinics make it easy for Marylanders to get vaccines, and we plan to use them extensively in the coming weeks to help ensure that anyone who wants a vaccine gets a vaccine.”

“If you’re ready to get a vaccine, now is the time to do it,” said Dr. Scott, who is a GoVAX Doctor in addition to being Dorchester County’s deputy health officer. “Appointments are not required here at the Hurlock mobile clinic, so it’s convenient to get a vaccine when it works for your schedule.”

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 their local populations – including vulnerable and hard-to-reach residents – to make vaccines available. The mobile vaccination unit that is currently located in Hurlock will move to another jurisdiction next week.
