Earlier this week, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that – following the CDC’s June 18th authorization of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for children age 6 months or older – vaccinations for young children are available statewide.  In Allegany County, COVID-19 vaccinations for children under 5 years of age can be obtained from local pediatricians.  Parents are encouraged to contact their pediatrician’s office to have their children vaccinated against COVID-19, and follow up with recommended booster vaccinations when eligible.
