Metro to host community vaccination clinic at Greenbelt Station
Beginning next week, Metro will host a transit-accessible community vaccination center run by FEMA at Greenbelt Station.
The Federal Pilot Community Vaccination Center is scheduled to open on April 7 and will serve the surrounding communities in Prince George's County. Work is currently underway to set up the site, which will be located in the parking lot area, and it will be fully staffed and operated by FEMA personnel.
"One year ago, we took the once unimaginable step of discouraging the use of Metro while the spread of a little-understood coronavirus disrupted every aspect of our lives," said Metro General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld. "Now, Metro is proud to host a vaccination center to help the communities we serve get protection from the virus and turn the page on this pandemic. At Metro, we're doing our part to keep the region moving and support its economic recovery, and we encourage everyone to do their part by getting vaccinated when eligible."
Signage will provide guidance to the vaccination site from the Metrorail station and parking areas. Parking in a designated lot will be available at no cost to those getting vaccinated.
Marylanders interested in receiving a vaccination can pre-register online at covidlink.maryland.gov or by calling 1-855-MD-GoVAX.
