Maryland Vaccine Update: 99% of Seniors Vaccinated and Over 50,000 Vaccinations Administered to 5- to 11-Year-Olds

Per the State of Maryland:

ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced that, according to official CDC data, 99% of Marylanders 65 and older have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The state continues to lead the region—and ranks in the top 10 in the nation—in boosters for seniors.

The governor also announced that the state has already surpassed 50,000 vaccinations for 5- to 11-year-olds.

“From our oldest to youngest eligible, we continue to lead one of the most successful vaccination campaigns in the country,” said Governor Hogan. “We have gotten to this point by listening to the experts and by following the science, and that is exactly what we will continue to do as we work to get those last remaining 1% of seniors, and the 12.7% of remaining adults in our state vaccinated, and as we now work to get more of our school age children vaccinated.”

To date, Maryland has administered nearly 8.9 million vaccinations, including 692,092 booster shots. According to official CDC data, 87.3% of Marylanders 18 and older have received at least one dose.

State health officials continue to strongly recommend that all seniors, particularly anyone with comorbidities and underlying health conditions, get a booster shot.
