Prince George’s Co. canceling vaccine appointments made by nonresidents

January 26, 2021

Officials in Prince George’s County, Maryland, are canceling all COVID-19 vaccination appointments made by people who don’t live and work in the county to prioritize the county’s own senior residents and make sure they are not stuck “in the back of the line.” Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced the move during a news conference Monday morning. When the county first opened up vaccine appointments to people age 75 and older under Phase 1b of Maryland’s vaccine rollout plan, the scheduling system, a state-run system, did not allow the county to screen out nonresidents, and it was swamped with appointments made by people outside the county.
