COVID Vaccination Clinic at UPMC Western MD Thursday

March 16th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

UPMC Western Maryland will hold a COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Allegany County residents 65 and older Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the hospital auditorium. Those interested in reserving a spot must call 240-964-1000 Tuesday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. or until all slots are filled.

Slots will be offered to callers on a first-come, first-served basis. No walk-in appointments will be honored. 

UPMC Western Maryland has utilized the Allegany County Health Department’s COVID-19 vaccine interest form to contact individuals over the last few weeks. That list of 65 and over candidates has been exhausted. All county residents age 65 and older who signed up for the vaccine but have not been contacted are encouraged to call to register.

The clinic is also open for all Allegany County residents who fall into the state of Maryland’s 1C guidelines, including those who have not filled out the interest form.
