PHOTOS: Take a peek into Maryland’s FEMA-run mobile vaccination units

Maryland is the site of one of the U.S.’ first Federal Emergency Management Agency’s coronavirus mobile vaccination units, and health officials got a chance to tour one of  two facilities set up along the Eastern Shore.

Representatives from the Maryland National Guard, the Maryland Emergency Management Administration and FEMA joined the state’s Acting Health Secretary, Dennis Schrader, during the tour.

Two 32-foot mobile trailers will be sites where residents in remote and underserved areas in Maryland can get vaccinated. The mobile units have cold storage for vaccine doses, storage for administrative materials, staff office space and generators.

Each mobile unit can administer a minimum of 250 COVID-19 vaccination doses a day. Residents can book an appointment through their county health departments.

The units are expected to remain in one location for at least a few days at a time.
