After about three months of operation, Montgomery County’s only COVID-19 mass vaccination site is closing Friday.
“Thanks to your tireless work, new cases are on a downward trend and we are beginning to open back up and Maryland is squarely on the road to recovery,” said Emergency Management and Homeland Security Director Dr. Earl Stoddard during a press conference Friday.
More than 73,000 vaccine doses have been administered at the Montgomery College Germantown site, according to the county. Beginning Tuesday, July 6, a vaccination site will open at the Upcounty Regional Services Center, which is also in Germantown.
Stoddard emphasized that the pandemic is not over yet.
“We’re celebrating progress but also recognizing that there’s more work and a different kind of work that has to go on moving forward,” he said.
