BALTIMORE — Coppin State has partnered with UMMS to create a campus COVID-19 vaccination call center to assist communities of color with scheduling appointments to get their vaccinations.
“We are pleased to partner with UMMS establish this call center which is specifically designed to improve equitable allocation of the COVID-19 vaccine and expand the emphasis on vaccinating the most vulnerable communities in Baltimore,” said Dr. Anthony L. Jenkins, CSU president.
The call center will assist in setting appointments and directing callers to the Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital (BCCFH), for vaccine shots.
“This call center will offer a valuable alternative for many of Baltimore’s vulnerable residents who may not have access to computers and the internet, therefore limiting their ability to schedule vaccine appointments,” Jenkins said.
Individuals in communities without digital access and in need of assistance registering can call 443-462-5864 or 443-462-5865, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Mondays and Wednesdays, and noon to 6 p.m., on Tuesdays and Thursdays, to schedule an appointment.
