January 27th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

As of 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27, UPMC Western Maryland will now register county residents 65 and over for its COVID-19 vaccination clinic to be held this Thursday, January 28 and Friday, January 29 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. in the hospital auditorium. At this clinic, the Pfizer vaccine will be administered, and arrangements for the second dose of the vaccine will be made at this time as well.

    Those interested in reserving a spot must call 240-964-1000 today, Wednesday, January 27, from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m., as no walk-in appointments will be honored. Slots will be offered to callers on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Individuals who are successfully scheduled to get the vaccine should look for signs with parking instructions and enter the hospital through the entrance adjacent to the parking garage where they will be screened and then directed to registration where they will be required to show their driver’s license or another valid form of identification.

    UPMC Western Maryland recognizes the importance of safely distributing the COVID-19 vaccine to its community members, and while the number of doses available for this clinic are limited, multiple additional clinics will be scheduled in the coming weeks with details to be announced soon.
