COVID Vaccine Directions
COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs
Q: I heard that First Call Medical Center/Centennial Medical Group is the Medical Director and Operations Manager for the Mass Vax Site at Columbia Mall. Can I call the office for a vaccine appointment?
A: Even though we are managing the Mass Vax site at the Mall, patients wanting an appointment for a vaccine are asked to go through the State’s GoVAX site at onestop.md.gov/govax or call (855)MDGOVAX. Our in-office staff is unable to schedule appointments for the Mass Vax site.
Q: I received a COVID vaccine recently and I’m not feeling well. What should I do?
A: Our Urgent Care Centers, Drive Thru Locations and Mobile Units see patients for COVID testing (which is recommended if having symptoms even after vaccination) and for patients to speak with a provider regarding symptoms and treatment for post-vaccine symptoms or any other illness or injury. We are also able to test for strep and flu at all locations.
Q: Will I be able to receive a vaccination at the one of the Mobile Units?
A: It is possible that we will be able to vaccinate some patients on a walk-up basis at our Mobile Units once the Mass Vax site closes for the day. In the event of a vaccine surplus resulting in a pop-up vaccine site at one of our Mobile Units, we will notify the public via social media (be sure to follow our pages to ensure notifications) and also by email.
Q: Can I see a provider if I am not feeling well?
A: We would be happy to see you in person at our Urgent Care Center in Maple Lawn!
Q: I have questions about vaccine eligibility, possible side effects, differences between vaccines, etc. Where can I find answers to these types of questions?
A: Answers to the most common questions can be found at CDC.gov
Q: I want to be tested for COVID prior to receiving my vaccination. How do I do that?
