Residents can expect to receive a text message over the next few days, encouraging them to visit baltimorecity.gov/bmorevax to find information about mobile clinics occurring throughout Baltimore City. Those without access to the internet can call Baltimore City’s COVID-19 Call Center at 443-984-8650 for information on how to make an appointment.

Residents in need of help with transportation can call 410-372-3444 or e-mail covidtransport@mjminnovations.com. Through a partnership with the Baltimore City Fire Department, homebound residents can request a home vaccination and register for an appointment by visiting covax.baltimorecity.gov. Homebound residents without internet access can call the Maryland Access Point hotline at 410-396-2273, Monday- Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. for assistance.

Residents already vaccinated that receive the text message are encouraged to forward the message to friends and family members interested in making a vaccination appointment. Those residents who do not wish to be contacted in future Baltimore City Health Department text message campaigns can reply “STOP” to be removed from the distribution list.
