COVID-19

All Marylanders 16 and older will be eligible for vaccines as of Monday, April 12.

The state has opened a walk-up vaccine line at the mass vaccination centers in Salisbury and Hagerstown, and will open a line at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore during the week of April 12. For more information on vaccine eligibility, guidelines and timelines, please click here.  

We have a limited number of doses for established​ Chase Brexton patients with access to our patient portal who meet the state's eligibility requirements. To schedule your vaccination, visit https://chasebrexton.myezyaccess.com/ezbooking.

Please note – Per Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa, patients with underlying health conditions seeking a vaccine do not require a letter from a health care provider as proof of the condition. Also, Chase Brexton has not yet received Pfizer vaccines approved for use on individuals 16 to 18 years of age, and will only be able to vaccinate individuals 18 and older.
