The 6 Phases of the Vaccine Distribution
Many people want to be at the front of the line when it comes time to receive the vaccine. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has met and issued guidance on who should receive the vaccine first. Similarly, the Maryland Department of Health has a committee to direct how the vaccine should be distributed in Maryland. At this time the CCDOH has created Phase 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A, 2B and 3. CCDOH is following CDC and state guidelines for the administration of the vaccine. As more vaccine is made available additional groupings will be added until everyone is covered. If you are not sure if you are in one of the currently eligible phases, there is a more detailed definition below.
If you have any questions about vaccine registration or need assistance in scheduling, please call the Charles County Department of Health COVID-19 hotline at 301-609-6717.
