Man receives shot

Showcase your story on social media using #UMBVaccinesWork, and we may highlight your experience.

Why did you decide to get the COVID-19 vaccine? Why should others get it? These are questions on the minds of many now that vaccines are available to help end the coronavirus pandemic.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Vaccination Clinic is open to serve the UMB community and select partners to Get The Vaccine. The UMB Vaccination Clinic is able to provide vaccinations for the Native American population, tribal or Native American agency employees, and Baltimore City residents and workers. Learn more at

Over the next few months, we will be highlighting members of the community and their vaccination experience. Share your experience getting vaccinated by tagging us @umbaltimore and using #UMBVaccinesWork on Twitter or Instagram. Include why you got the vaccine. You can also submit your photos and comments about your vaccine experience, by clicking here

Our first entry is from Mohammad, who said after receiving the vaccine:

"I can now go and hold my grandchild. For the last several months, I haven't held my grandchild. I can hug my daughter. I haven't done that for a long while. I'm dying for that. Please, come. Take the shot."
