Maryland Administers Over 7.5 Million COVID-19 Vaccines
Governor Larry Hogan announced today that the state of Maryland has administered over 7.5 million COVID-19 vaccinations.
According to the press release, 80.6% of Marylanders 18 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 94.5% of Marylanders 65 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“The vaccines are without a doubt our single most effective tool to mitigate the threat of COVID-19 and the surging Delta variant, and Maryland’s vaccination rate continues to outpace the nation,” said Governor Hogan. “Equally as important as getting a vaccine yourself is helping someone you know to get a vaccine. The vaccines are very safe, they are very effective, they are completely free, and they are widely available nearly everywhere” said Hogan
