Vaccine

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health and Chesapeake College have teamed up to offer COVID-19 vaccines at the Wye Mills campus.

WYE MILLS — Through a partnership between University of Maryland Shore Regional Health and Chesapeake College, COVID-19 vaccinations are being offered by appointment on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at the Wye Mills campus.

According to a news release, the vaccines will be given in the college’s Eastern Shore Higher Education Center beginning Wednesday, April 7.

The vaccines are provided by UM Shore Regional Health and administered by hospital personnel and volunteers, including nurses, former nurses and pharmacists.

“This really opens the gates to a much broader range of people who can now get vaccinated and help protect themselves, their family members, co-workers and friends from COVID-19,” said Kevin Chapple, UM Shore Regional Health’s regional director of Pharmacy Services. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to get vaccinated quickly, safely and efficiently, close to home.”

“We’re pleased that our partnership with University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is expanding to further care for our community,” said Chesapeake College President Clifford Coppersmith. “In addition to serving as a COVID-19 testing site, our centrally located Wye Mills campus will also be a convenient site for Shore residents to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. Providing a location and support for this vaccination site is another way Chesapeake College is helping the region recover from the pandemic.”
