I must congratulate Frederick Health Village on the extremely efficient clinic they are holding.

So much of what you see or read is negative and I can sense the frustration. This clinic should be the template for the way others attempt to meet community need. Including the 15 minutes you wait after the shot, the whole event took 20 minutes.

I am very grateful for such a positive experience.

I have heard that Frederick County got NO vaccine dosages last week and is expecting only half of what was requesting this week, so the problem isn't what happens at an appointment - it's that there is no appointment! What's the deal? Where are our country representatives and why aren't they pushing for vaccines? While Hogan is bragging about all the dosages given in Maryland, we in Frederick County are getting little or nothing.


That could be a rumor, brookhawk. We got our second shot at the middle of last week and they were busy giving shots.


Frederick Health a well oiled machine from initial appts to delivery of both vaccines. Staff so incredibly kind and professional. A huge thanks to all!


I agree. We hear all the nightmares of impossible appointments, canceled appointments, long lines waiting out in the cold, etc. we got an email from Frederick Health saying we were eligible and how to sign up, got an appointment 3 days later, got the shot and an appointment for the second shot, and as the gentleman said, went to Frederick Health Village and were out in 30 minutes. How do they do it? They are under the auspices of Frederick Health Dept. too.


In early January I contacted the FREDCO health department about a standby list for any leftover vaccine at the end of the day. We got lucky. They called one evening and we dropped everything and boogied to town. It wasn't our turn by group, but vaccine went into our arm instead of down the drain. We heard from friends this week that they won't take anymore signups for standby.


Walgreens in Smithsburg was just as efficient. The problem is getting an appointment.
