Beware of Scam Phone Calls
Calvert County residents have reported receiving phone calls from scammers posing as organizations registering people for COVID-19 vaccinations. Legitimate sources for vaccine scheduling will never ask for your social security number or any type of financial information, including credit card numbers.
If you receive an email or phone call from anyone claiming to sign you up for a vaccination or asking for any personal financial information, delete the email or hang up the phone. You can report scam calls or emails to law enforcement. Please call 410-535-2800 for the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office or 410-535-1400 for the Maryland State Police, Prince Frederick Barrack. Please do not call 911.
PRE-REGISTER FOR THE COVID-19 VACCINE ONLINE
Calvert County residents age 18 and older who wish to receive a COVID-19 vaccination may pre-register online.
PRE-REGISTER OVER THE PHONE
A call center is also available to assist Calvert County residents who wish to pre-register for the vaccination over the phone. For assistance, residents may call 410-535-0218, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you pre-registered for the COVID-19 vaccine through the Calvert County pre-registration portal, your information has been received. Pre-registration is intended to identify individuals interested in the vaccine and to establish a means of communication with the Calvert County Health Department when vaccine doses are available for eligible populations. Even if you do not hear back right away, you do not need to re-submit your information. You may visit the COVID-19 virtual resource center for answers to frequently asked questions. Please contact your primary care physician for any health questions related to the vaccine.
