2022 NACo Achievement Award Winner
Mass Vaccination Site Support
Baltimore County, Md.

About the Program

CATEGORY: Information Technology
YEAR: 2022
In a coordinated effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Baltimore County Government established numerous mass vaccination locations throughout the county. Five regional sites were set up for the public, so we could reach as many residents as possible. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) stood up internet connections at each location, sometimes needed to use a County designed portable hotspot where connectivity was not yet available. OIT also provided over 400 iPads to run customized applications, broadcasted Wi-Fi for the staff laptops and iPads and for constituents who visited the locations, activated an AM radio frequency for broadcast messaging at the largest site on the state fairgrounds, and provided temperature monitoring for the freezer units that housed the medication. This was the most effective way to safely vaccinate a large group of people as quickly as possible. Due to the success and speed achieved, the Baltimore County COVID Vaccination Clinics became a model for the state to follow as more counties and agencies opened clinics.
