COVID-19 vaccines are being offered in Maryland to patients 16 years and older as of 12 April, 2021. BMS currently offers the Moderna Vaccine to our patients, which requires you be 18 years or older to receive.
BMS currently has a limited supply for our patients. Call 443-703-3600 and press 1 on our main menu to schedule an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine, if available.
In order to receive the vaccine, you must meet the following criteria:
- You are an established patient who receives care at BMS and has been seen within the last 3 years
- You are 18 or older
- You are not currently ill with COVID-19, have symptoms, or been exposed to COVID10 within the last 14 days
- You have not received a monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 illness within the last 90 days
- You have not started or received the COVID-19 vaccine series at a non-BMS location
- You have not had a severe allergic reaction to Moderna vaccines
For those who are currently ill, have been exposed, or received monoclonial infusion, you need to wait until the time period noted above has been met in order to receive the vaccine. Those who have started the COVID-19 vaccine series at a non-BMS location should receive their second doses at that same location. If you have had a severe allergic reaction to the components of the vaccine or other vaccines, please consult with your provider to determine if you should get this vaccine.
