COVID-19 Vaccination Updates

Governor Larry Hogan has announced COVID-19 vaccination updates that include accelerated eligibility for adults in the state of Maryland. As of April 12, all Marylanders who are 16 years of age or older are eligible to get vaccinated at mass vaccination sites AND schedule appointments for vaccines through all providers.

The acceleration or eligibility phases has been quicker than anticipated, but a promising step for Maryland and the country. As Governor Hogan said, “Getting more people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can is our absolute best defense against these variants, and it is the best way to win the long war against this deadly virus.”
