I thought I would take a little time this morning and document the various locations where you can obtain your COVID-19 vaccination in Carroll County. This was a bit of a popular and helpful post for Howard County posted yesterday. Here are the locations in Carroll County listed by the State of Maryland: https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine
Vaccinations are available through hospitals, local health departments, pharmacies, and mass vaccination sites. If you are eligible to receive a vaccine, contact providers as indicated to schedule your appointment. Vaccinations are appointment-only.

Local Health Departments
Carroll County Health Department
Additional information from the Carroll County Health Department noted on their website on February 24th:
New State of Maryland COVID-19 Vaccination Support Center at 1-855-MDGOVAX (1-855-634-6829) open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The Carroll County Health Department is currently in Phase 1B, finishing 1A. We receive only 800-1,200 doses per week of the Moderna vaccine for 18 and older, though we request 3000. This allocation is decided by the state based on population. See our press release for additional details and this Maryland Department of Health press release for more information on state allocations.
Due to our limited vaccine supply will not be able to vaccinate everyone in Phase 1B right away, and we are not yet able to start vaccinating people in Phase 1C at Health Department clinics. People in Phase 1C, including people age 65-74, may be vaccinated at other sites if an appointment is available.
