BALTIMORE, Md. — A new one-stop shop for Marylanders looking for information on the COVID-19 vaccine. The Maryland Department of Health launched an information page today to serve as a home base for vaccine updates as information continues to evolve.

“Our CovidLink site is among the most dynamic, robust and trustworthy COVID-19 information sources for Marylanders,” said MDH Acting Secretary Dennis R. Schrader.

“This is a rapidly changing situation, so we want to ensure that everyone looks to CovidLink for the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 vaccinations, as more information becomes available.”

The new page includes information about Maryland COVID-19 vaccine priority groups; vaccine status and dosing information; and resources about vaccine development, clinical studies and emergency use authorization approval.

The page will be updated frequently and will also link to MDH’s forthcoming COVID-19 vaccination data dashboard.

“Having a safe and effective vaccine is critical to Maryland’s COVID-19 vaccination plan success, as is our commitment to keeping the public informed,” said MDH Acting Deputy Secretary for Public Health Dr. Jinlene Chan.

“In addition to updating our CovidLink site and releasing our COVID-19 vaccination data, we will continue our outreach and engagement to ensure communities statewide have the information and resources they need.”

Maryland launched covidLINK in August. It includes information about testing, contact tracing, frequently asked questions, and slowing the spread of of COVID-19, among other things.
