Some of our students may be eligible to get vaccines in the eligibility phase and may choose to do it on our campus.
COVID-19 Vaccines to Be Offered at Chesapeake College
Through a partnership between University of Maryland Shore Regional Health and Chesapeake College, COVID-19 vaccinations will be provided by appointment on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in the College’s Eastern Shore Higher Education Center on the Wye Mills campus, beginning Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
At this time, vaccine eligibility has been expanded to include those in the 2b tier; for details, visit “Vaccine Phases” on this link: https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine.
'We're pleased that our partnership with University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is expanding to further care for our community. In addition to serving as a Covid-19 testing site, our centrally located Wye Mills campus will also be a convenient site for Shore residents to receive Covid-19 vaccinations. Providing a location and support for this vaccination site is another way Chesapeake College is helping the region recover from the pandemic," said Chesapeake College President Clifford Coppersmith.

“This really opens the gates to a much broader range of people who can now get vaccinated and help protect themselves, their family members, co-workers and friends from COVID-19,” says UM Shore Regional Health’s Regional director of Pharmacy Services, Kevin Chapple. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to get vaccinated quickly, safely and efficiently, close to home.”
