CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION AND VACCINE

There are many people that have few to no symptoms while they are infectious with the virus. It is therefore advised that we all wear a mask or other similar nose and mouth covering in public. If we all cover up to prevent infecting others, we can reduce the viral spread. see link to make your own facial covering.

Maryland Endocrine recommends you get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it’s available to you.

  • The vaccines that we’re recommending have been approved for safe use.
  • Vaccine distribution will occur in phases, with those at highest risk in the earliest phases.  We will not have the vaccine in our office until it is available to the general population.
  • Practice social distancing, wear a mask properly outside your home, wash your hands frequently, and follow your state and local recommendations.
