Prince George's County is making great strides in vaccinating our residents against COVID-19 and we are now vaccinating 15,000+ people each week. The Health Department has outfitted and mobilized three vaccination vans to reach homebound residents. If you are homebound or are the caregiver of someone who is homebound, please call 311 to schedule an appointment. Today Governor Hogan announced that Maryland is moving into Phase 2 eligibility and indicated that we will have enough supply to vaccinate all Marylanders who want to be vaccinated in the next few months.

I am also pleased that the County Health Department will now provide the white CDC vaccination cards to those who have been vaccinated but did not receive a card. To request a card, please send an email to:COVID19_VaxCard@co.pg.md.us.

As vaccine eligibility expands and supply continues to increase. all residents of Prince George's County age 16+, should pre-register for the vaccine through the County Health Department and Luminis Health via the links below. Visit the State of Maryland website for a listing of all locations with the vaccine. Please urge your friends, family and neighbors to pre-register today. In order to get back to "normal" it is crucial that as many residents as possible are vaccinated.

Transforming the New Carrollton Metro Station
A s you may know, promoting transit-oriented development in District 3 has been one of my top priorities since being elected. I'm thrilled that this vision is becoming a reality at the New Carrollton Metro Station. The Stella multi-family building will be leasing soon. The WMATA Maryland Headquarters is being constructed and will open in late 2022. Additional multi-family is under construction or in development review. A LIDL grocery store is also being proposed for the Defense Heights Shopping Center on Rt. 450. If you missed my community update about the New Carrollton Metro Station, I hope you'll take the time to watch it now.
