The city has used separate forms for separate populations in the past, but is now using one single form to pre-register the eligible residents.
If you’ve already registered with the City, you don’t need to use the new portal. You’re already on the city’s list! They said they will contact you once a vaccine appointment becomes available.
The list is not first-come, first-served, city officials said.READ MORE: M&T Bank Stadium Mass Vaccination Site Offers Direct Scheduling Option
“I’d like to be very clear on this point – this list is not first-come, first-served. We continue to have a focus on equity and vaccinations of higher-risk individuals first,” said Dr. Letitia Dzirasa, Baltimore City Health Commissioner.
They will also be announcing plans for people to register if they don’t have internet access.
Eligible older adults, those who have intellectual or developmental disabilities, or their caregivers, should also fill out the interest forms, which inlcude a question about whether the person seeking a vaccine is homebound.
They can call the Maryland Access Point Hotline at 410-396-2273 if they do not have internet access, and a representative will help them fill out their form.MORE NEWS: Baltimore City COVID Cases Growing At Higher Rate Than Maryland, U.S; Officials Attribute Rise To Gen Z, Millennials and Gen X
