The mass vaccination clinic Prince George’s County operating at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex in Landover will close after Friday, April 8th. It’s not the only county – run place that closes.

With coronavirus cases on the decline in Prince George’s County, health officials said Wednesday that Maryland County will close a vaccination clinic and one of its COVID-19 test sites.

The county-run mass vaccination clinic at Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex in Landover closes after Friday, April 8, officials said. The county will also stop offering COVID-19 testing at the Temple Hills Community Center after Friday, March 25th.

One of the state-run COVID-19 test sites in Prince George’s County has already been shut down. The University of Maryland Laurel Hospital’s public test site closed on March 11th.

The county’s second state-run test site at Doctors Community Hospital / Washington Education Zone in Lanham closes on Thursday.

Prince George’s County Health Officer Dr. Ernest Carter said the county’s COVID-19 vaccination rate is one of the highest in the country and that the level of infection in the community is low. He added that the demand for tests and vaccines has fallen.

“With many community partners providing most of the test and vaccine services to residents, the Ministry of Health can begin to reduce its capacity at this point in the pandemic, while being ready to screw up again if necessary,” Carter said in a news release.

  • Bunker Hill Fire Station in Brentwood;
