ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Government, Howard County Health Department, and the Howard County Public School System are partnering with Safeway to provide a children’s vaccine clinic at the Bain 50+ Center, 5470 Ruth Keeton Way in Columbia, this Saturday, December 18th, from 10:00 – 6:00 p.m. The clinic will only be providing doses of the Pfizer vaccine for children 5-11 years old.

To date, nearly 44% of our 5–11-year-old residents have received at least one vaccine dose – that’s nearly 14,000 of our children and is incredible progress. With new variants and the holiday season underway, it’s more important than ever to ensure our children have this additional layer of protection from COVID-19. We’re grateful to our partners at Safeway for providing these vaccine doses and helping us reach more of our community. Let’s get vaccinated.
“Getting the youngest of our eligible residents vaccinated will help control the spread of COVID-19 in the community, prevent hospitalizations and save lives” said Dr. Maura J. Rossman, Howard County Health Officer.
