CalvertHealth Medical Group Restricts Visitation

At CalvertHealth Medical Group, our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, employees and the community that we serve. We continue to take proactive measures and as such, CalvertHealth Medical Group is not permitting visitors to the practices, with few exceptions.

Few exceptions include:

  • Patients under 18 years of age who require a parent/legal guardian will be permitted (1) one support person
  • Oncology patients who require assistance will be permitted (1) support person
  • OB/GYN patients are allowed (1) visitor

This is done with an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of all our patients, healthcare workers and our partners that assist in the delivery of care today and in the future.

CalvertHealth Medical Group acknowledges that this policy may cause some inconvenience for many patients and their family members; however, patient safety and the overall health of the community is the health system’s primary concern.

Community Vaccine and Booster Clinics

The COVID-19 Vaccine:

At CalvertHealth, your health and safety is our top priority. Information about the vaccine is rapidly changing and you may have a lot of questions about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines, as well as how you can obtain a vaccine. We want to provide you with information to make an informed decision. Although there are many reasons to get the vaccine, the most compelling is that it could protect you and those around you from this life-threatening virus.

Even after you are vaccinated, you will still need to follow guidelines or ordinances specific to your area regarding masking, social distancing, handwashing and other hygiene measures. 

Which vaccine is the best? Should I wait to be offered a certain vaccine?
Getting vaccinated with the first vaccine available to you will help protect all of us from COVID-19. Having different types of vaccines available for use, especially ones with different dosing recommendations and storage and handling requirements, can offer more options and flexibility for the public, jurisdictions and vaccine providers.

When can I be vaccinated?
As this time, anyone age 5+ is eligible to receive a vaccine, noting that 5-17 year-olds may only receive the Pfizer vaccine.  

Where can I get vaccinated?
Vaccines are offered through local health departments, primary care offices and pharmacies.

Who can I call if I have questions about the vaccine?
The Calvert County Health Department has set up a call center to assist residents without internet access who wish to register for vaccination. For questions or assistance, residents may call 410.535.0218, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
