Prince George's County COVID-19
Vaccination Update

Dear Prince Georgians:

  • We are Prince George’s Proud to share that Prince George’s County’s COVID-19 case rate has been declining the past few weeks. According to the CDC, the County is approaching the “moderate” stage of community transmission. Our case rate is one of the lowest in the region, at 56.09 cases weekly per 100,000 residents as of October 29.
  • We want to thank Prince Georgians for their vigilance and care throughout this pandemic, and for stepping up to get vaccinated against COVID-19. We are closely monitoring our COVID-19 metrics, and if numbers continue to decline and our case rate remains under 50 cases weekly per 100,000 residents for seven consecutive days, we will revise the indoor mask mandate. As a reminder, our indoor mask mandate currently remains in effect for all individuals ages 2 years and older, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Based on updated CDC guidance, Prince George’s County is now offering Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots, in addition to the previously authorized Pfizer booster shots. Residents in the following groups who received a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are eligible for a booster shot six months or more after completing their initial series:
  • Individuals 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine are eligible for a booster shot if they were vaccinated two or more months ago. Visit for more information.
  • The County Health Department will begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5 to 11 years when the FDA, CDC and State of Maryland grant official authorization to do so. Free COVID-19 vaccines will be available to this age group at Health Department COVID-19 vaccination clinics, pediatricians’ offices, retail and grocery store pharmacies, urgent care facilities, and other health care providers in the County.
  • The County Health Department encourages residents to celebrate Halloween safely by adhering to the County’s public indoor mask mandate for individuals ages 2 years and older, and by practicing COVID-19-related health and safety measures to limit the risk of spread including:
    • If you choose to trick-or-treat door-to-door, only do so with members of your household or a small group of close friends.
    • Consider Halloween-themed cloth face coverings instead of costume masks. Costume masks have mouth and nose holes and when worn alone do not provide the same protection as face coverings. Do not share masks, fangs, or similar items.
    • Bring hand sanitizer when trick-or-treating.
    • Candy should be given out using a scoop or tongs so the candy is not directly handled. Children should not reach into candy bowls or bags.
    • Avoid indoor parties and party games like bobbing for apples or other activities that might involve sharing items that come into contact with other people’s mouths or noses.
  • For additional holiday gathering COVID-19 safety guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, please visit For general Halloween safety guidance, visit the County Health Department’s website.

Yours in service,
Angela Alsobrooks
Prince George’s County Executive
