“Having nearly all of our seniors vaccinated is a major milestone for Maryland, but we continue to focus on leaving no arm behind, including that last 11.8% of unvaccinated adults,” said Governor Hogan.

“With boosters open to all adults, and school clinics up and running across the state, we continue to have the supply and the capacity to provide vaccines to anyone who needs one.”

The governor announced that the state has expanded eligibility for booster shots to include all adults.

To date, the state is reporting 861,032 booster shots administered. Nearly half of the state’s eligible seniors have received a booster shot.
