Prince George's County Maryland sent this bulletin

Dear Prince Georgians:
Yours in Service,
Prince George’s County Executive
The Prince George’s County Vaccine Equity Team was convened by the County Executive, in February 2021, to achieve four goals:
The Equity Team developed a comprehensive equity plan that serves as a living document to be updated as opportunities arise. The plan is based around a zip code prioritization matrix to determine priority areas where the County should direct resources. The matrix considers COVID-19 cases, pre-registrations, vaccinations, individuals and families below the poverty line, and a SocioNeeds Index. Each week, the prioritization matrix is refreshed as more data is collected. Additionally, the Equity Team advises County agencies of inclusive best practices, participates in scheduling County mobile units, and regularly meets with community partners to ensure County residents have access to vaccines inside and outside government institutions.
In order to receive a COVID-19 vaccine through the Prince George’s County Health Department, individuals who live or work in the County must fill out our pre-registration form.
This week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, addresses a rumor that has been circulating in communities that COVID-19 vaccines will change your DNA. Click here to watch the video.
Our Proud to be Protected video series hightlights proud Prince Georgians who are encouraging their fellow residents to be Proud to be Protected from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated. Click here to hear from Yvette Lewis, Delegate Joseline Peña-Melnyk and Senator Paul Pinsky on why they are Proud to be Protected from COVID-19.
While the County Health Department currently operates six vaccination clinics in the County, in addition to three mobile vaccination units, there are a number of vaccination sites available in Prince George’s County that are not operated by the County. We encourage you to sign up at these other sites to increase your options to receive a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Please remember that we do not manage nor control appointments, or distribution for any sites besides those operated by our County Health Department.
