5.12.21 – COVID-19 Vaccinations for Adolescent Patients

Dear Pediatric Providers,

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health would like to invite you and your practice to learn more about COVID vaccine availability for your patients. Vaccinating children is a critical component of the work you do everyday. The Department of Health would like to make vaccines available to practices interested in incorporating COVID vaccination into your care delivery. As COVID vaccine eligibility broadens, we are excited to work with you to ensure easily accessible vaccines to all children in the county.

During this informational session the Department of Health will discuss the following:

  • Review the process to request COVID vaccine from the DOH for your patients
  • Where and when DOH clinics are held and how your patients can register
  • Safe vaccine handling and storage
  • Q&A session with DOH staff

To better inform the content of the information session and our website, please complete this brief survey about how your practice plans to facilitate or administer vaccination of your patients.

The informational session will be held on Friday May, 14th from 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Deena Winley at hdwinl20@aacounty.org. The session is open to all clinicians and practice managers.

If you are unable to attend, information on the COVID vaccine transfer process can be found here. Thank you for the critical role you play in caring for the children of Anne Arundel County and managing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sincerely,

Tonii Gedin, RN, DNP
Deputy Health Officer of Public Health
