Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Secretary Dennis R. Schrader and representatives from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) and Johns Hopkins Medicine today visited the State Center Vaccination, Testing, and Treatment Site (300 W. Preston Street) to highlight Maryland’s expansion of COVID-19 Test To Treat provider infrastructure and successful vaccination efforts. The State Center site offers one-stop COVID-19 services, including vaccinations, testing, and therapeutics, at no charge to visitors. 


The State Center is operated jointly by MDH, UMMS, and Johns Hopkins Medicine and is a critical component of Governor Larry Hogan’s COVIDReady Maryland initiative to keep Maryland families safe. Friday is the 2-year anniversary of the State Center’s first COVID test.
