Maryland COVID Vaccine Eligibility: Phase 2 set to begin March 23
BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Maryland will enter Phase 2 of its vaccination distribution plan starting Tuesday, March 23.
Governor Larry Hogan made the announcement Thursday afternoon while also unveiling a vaccine eligibility timeline for all Maryland residents.
“We continue to leverage every possible resource we can to get shots into arms as efficiently and equitably as possible,” said Governor Hogan. “We have built the infrastructure capacity and we are being promised the supply to be able to vaccinate every Marylander in the next couple months. I can assure you that our entire team will not rest until every single Marylander who wants a vaccine has received a vaccine.”
Beginning March 23, Marylanders age 60 and older will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
On March 30, officials say Marylanders age 16 and older with underlying medical conditions can get vaccinated.
Gov. Hogan says, all Marylanders will be eligible to receive a vaccine no later than April 27.
Based on our accelerating vaccination rate and an anticipated increase in supply from the federal government, I’m pleased to announce that Maryland will enter Phase 2 of our vaccine distribution plan early next week. https://t.co/ns4G0ApjZo pic.twitter.com/2Sl7MS9SJ2— Governor Larry Hogan (@GovLarryHogan) March 18, 2021
