By offering on-demand scheduling, we’re making it even easier for people across Baltimore County to get their shot,” County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. said in a news release.
The Baltimore County Department of Health will post a weekly vaccine schedule at baltimorecountymd.gov/vaccine. Appointments are preferred but not required.
