COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID-19 vaccine information

Latest Update -  May 5, 2021

Luminis Health wants to be sure you have the most up-to-date information around the COVID-19 vaccine.

As part of the State of Maryland’s vaccination roll-out plan, we provide vaccines to our community. If you are eligible, learn more about how to request a vaccine.

By getting vaccinated, you can also help protect people around you—your family, your friends and your community.

Be a good neighbor.

If you know someone who may have difficulty getting their COVID-19 vaccine, lend a hand.

Ask if you can help with registration, offer a ride, share resources or make a connection by just dropping a note in their mailbox. By working together, looking out for one another and sharing hope, we can end this pandemic — together.

Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information.
