“These events will offer a safe and kid-friendly environment for young children to receive their COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s County Health Officer. “Parents will also be able to ask local physicians their questions about COVID-19 vaccine so they can then make informed decisions for their family.”

Please review the allergy guidance and the FAQs for SMCHD COVID-19 Vaccination prior to registering your child for a vaccine appointment.
