The county is now vaccinating residents 75 and older with appointments and will continue providing appointments to those in Priority Group 1B (Tier 1) as the supply of vaccines permits, officials announced today.
Only those individuals who have pre-registered online will be provided a link from firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment with a county-run vaccine clinic.
“People who have not received a link directly from the County and show up to a County-run vaccine clinic will not be served unless they are in Priority Group 1A or 75 and older,” officials said in a press release.
“The Montgomery County Government is aware that appointment links have been forwarded and the State appointment system does not have a filter to prevent sharing a link,” the release said. “The sharing of links has created confusion for residents and is negatively impacting the vaccine distribution process.
“Residents should not forward the appointment link to others,” officials added in the announcement.
Residents in Priority Group 1B, Tier 2 or 3 (teachers, childcare workers, essential workers, and individuals with developmental disabilities) will be invited to preregister later this week, as will those in Priority Group 1C, Tier 1 (65-74 years old).
