Find COVID-19 Vaccination Information and Resources for Seniors

MontgomeryCountySEAL THUMBNAIL

The COVID-19 vaccination program, administered by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, is preregistering people based on their priority group status, as set by the state of Maryland.

Demand is high and supplies limited. Anticipate delays when you call.

A new portal, at covidvax.maryland.gov, allows eligible Marylanders to enter their address, ZIP code or location to view vaccination clinics available within a 50-mile radius.

State Opens Call Center to Help Offline Seniors Access COVID-19 Vaccinations

Know a senior who’s eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, but they don’t have access to the internet?

Have them call the new COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center: 1-855-MDGOVAX (1-855-634-6829).

The Maryland Department of Health and Maryland Department of Aging are working together to promote access to vaccines for non-internet-connected seniors through this telephone-based support line and appointment system.

Transportation for Seniors

If you need a ride to a vaccination appointment, call: 

  • Senior Connection, 301-962-0820 
  • Connect A Ride, 301-738-3252 

The senior center’s Call and Ride program is available during this crisis to provide taxi coupons to seniors in need of transportation. 

Seniors, living in the city limits of Rockville, in need of transportation can call 240-314-8810 for assistance.

More Senior Resources

Seniors in need of meals can call 240-314-8810. Distributions are scheduled for Wednesdays.

Maryland’s Senior Call Check Program is a daily call program to verify seniors’ wellbeing. Participants can register on Maryland’s website and choose a time for their scheduled call. 

If you require assistance, call or email the Rockville Senior Center, 240-314-8800 or seniorcenter@rockvillemd.gov.
