Need a ride to the mass vaccination site in Annapolis? Anne Arundel County, Maryland, has you covered.
The site at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium will begin vaccinating people starting April 15, and County Executive Steuart Pittman and Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley want to make sure transportation is not a problem.
“Anne Arundel County has prioritized our most vulnerable residents throughout the vaccination rollout, and we will continue to do so at the new mass vaccination site by providing free, convenient transportation options for our residents,” Pittman said.
Navy Stadium is centrally located, “but for those without easy access to transportation options, it might as well be a million miles away, Buckley said.
