April: Financial Education MonthFinancial Tip of the Week:Brown bag your lunch. The reason you hear this tip so much is that it works! If buying lunch at work costs $5, but making lunch at home costs only $2.50, then in a year, you could afford to create a $500 emergency fund and still have money left over!Free Financial Education ProgramsBuild your knowledge by attending our financial workshops with our partners at M&T Bank! Both virtual and in-person sessions are available, please see the flier below for more information.Interested in Getting the COVID Vaccine?Hello Neighbors,
We wanted to share the following information regarding vaccination appointments. For Baltimore City residents who qualify and are interested in getting a vaccination appointment close to downtown, the Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital (BCCFH) and M&T Bank Stadium are the two closest vaccination sites for residents of the Southwest Baltimore area. Community members should enroll through the “Complete the BCC Vaccine Request form” on the Baltimore City Convention Field Hospital Website: www.umms.org/BCCVaccine or start the online registration process for M&T Bank Stadium at: www.umms.org/StadiumVax. If you have time, you may want to register at both places.
Individuals without computer access or who otherwise need assistance filling out the appointment request form for the BCCFH can call 443-462-5511 Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Marylanders can also reach the state’s vaccine call center at 855-MDGOVAX (855-634-6829) seven days a week from 7 am to 10 pm to get assistance with registration, information on COVID vaccines and identify providers closest to their homes.
Vaccination plans, appointments and access points will continue to evolve as vaccine supply increases. We are excited by the significant interest among city residents to get vaccinated and remain committed to helping lead this effort. In the meantime, we ask that you remain patient and stay safe.Pictured: Bishop of New Psalmist Baptist Church and his partner getting their vaccination shots.
