More doses are on the way to D.C., Maryland, and Virginia a the newly approved Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are shipped out.

PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — The long awaited COVID-19 vaccine is finally coming to long-term care facilities in Maryland.

On Saturday, Collington Care Facility in Prince George’s County received enough doses to inoculate some of its staff and residents. Collington is Prince George’s County’s only continuing care retirement community.

“We got a call from CVS [last] Friday night and they gave us all of the instructions about what we had to do to get ready for them today. It was a very short timeframe, so we got busy very quickly getting all of our data into the system,” Collington CEO Ann Gillespie said. “We have over 110 of our team members being vaccinated today and 98% of nursing home and assisted living residents."

On Wednesday, CVS pharmacy teams began bringing the Moderna vaccine into 1,775 Maryland nursing homes and long-term care facilities and administering the inoculations to at least 107,000 residents and staff.
