COVID vaccines are available at some Maryland pharmacies, but signing up may still be tricky. Here’s what we know.

Coronavirus vaccines are being administered at 51 pharmacies across Maryland, including dozens located in supermarkets and superstores, according to the state’s health department.

Signing up for vaccines has proved tricky for many Marylanders, and the process to get an appointment at pharmacies appears to follow that trend. For example, Maryland’s COVID-19 vaccine site points residents to Rite Aid’s online eligibility form, while a recorded message at one of the pharmacy locations says that “our associates are not yet able to schedule or determine eligibility for COVID vaccines.”


To find an appointment, enter your ZIP code at https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine and try the providers listed, which include pharmacies. If the state website says there are no appointments, adjust the mileage range with the slider at the top of the screen.

Maryland is vaccinating people 65 and older, front-line health care workers and first responders, educators, and certain essential workers. To find out whether you’re one of the estimated 2-3 million people eligible, go to https://covidlink.maryland.gov/content/vaccine/.


Health officials have urged patience as the supply of doses is limited. The various pharmacies check eligibility through pre-appointment screening or by checking identification at the time of an appointment.

Here’s more information about where the vaccinating pharmacies are located and how to sign up:

The pharmacy will receive about 11,000 vaccines and start administering them at pharmacies in Baltimore, Bowie, Chester, Frederick, Fulton, Hagerstown, Ocean City and Rockville.

Those who meet Maryland’s vaccination criteria, currently in 1C of its vaccine rollout, can sign up online at CVS.com, through the pharmacy’s app or call 800-746-7287. Walk-in appointments will not be accepted.

The pharmacy chain requires those seeking an appointment to sign up for a Walgreens pharmacy account and log into their account to complete a screening survey.
