ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland has expanded eligibility for COVID-19 booster shots to all adults. Gov. Larry Hogan made the announcement Friday.

People 18 and older who completed a primary series of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six months ago are eligible for a booster.

Individuals who received a primary series of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago continue to be eligible for a booster dose.

Hogan says more than 800,000 booster shots have been administered in the state.

Hogan says the state continues to have both the supply and the capacity to provide a booster shot to anyone who needs one.
