The latest vaccine numbers for Maryland: 2 million+ vaccinated (34% of adults), Phase 2B (age 16+ with increased risk) begins 3/30, and 6 more mass vaccination sites coming.
Another mass vaccination site set and a pre-registration website coming next month, nearly 30k shots now administered each day, increasing reports of fraud surrounding the vaccine, and additional screening for COVID-19 variants.
Now headed to the House of Delegates, the Senate has approved its pandemic RELIEF package with $1.5 billion in assistance for Marylanders.
While supply continues to be limited with only 10,000 doses available each day, Hogan is expanding Phase 1 of vaccine distribution to include those who are severely immunocompromised. Mobile clinics and mass vaccination sites with National Guard support are coming soon.
With experts insisting that in-person instruction does not increase community spread or hospitalizations, and COVID-19 numbers beginning to plateau since introduction of the vaccine, Governor Hogan urges schools to get kids in classrooms no later than March 1.
Governor Hogan announced an expedited rollout of the vaccine in Maryland – moving Phase 1B up to Monday 1/18 for ages 75+, assisted living residents and adding K-12 teachers, staff and child care providers. Phase 1C (ages 65-74) to begin Monday 1/25.
Governor Hogan provided a status on the vaccine rollout across Maryland to-date, and changes to Phases 1A, 1B, 1C and Phase 2. The National Guard will help local health departments beginning tomorrow and providers must report data within 24 hours.
