With new COVID-19 variants emerging, and school and activities bringing us all back together, it’s important to make sure you and your family are COVIDReady. Here are a few simple steps you can take:
Get vaccinated or boosted.
See if your health care provider offers COVID vaccinations, or visit covidvax.maryland.gov to find a COVID-19 clinic near you that can provide vaccinations or boosters. You can also call the GoVAX Call Center at 1-855-MD-GoVAX for assistance.
Know what to do if positive.
You may be eligible for medication to prevent severe illness or hospitalization, but oral medication is only effective if started within five days of illness. If you test positive, act fast and visit CovidTEST.maryland.gov to find a treatment location nearest you. If you are 50+ or have underlying health conditions, talk to your doctor about your eligibility for treatment and have a COVIDReady plan.
