As part of his No Arm Left Behind campaign, on Tuesday, Governor Larry Hogan announced three drive-thru vaccination sites that dont require appointments.
“Expanding no-appointment vaccinations is another way we are working to make it as easy as possible for people to get vaccinated,” said Governor Hogan. “Our goal throughout this massive effort remains the same—to provide a vaccine to every single Marylander who wants one.”
He also announced Maryland is now offering no appointment vaccinations at nine mass vaccination sites throughout the state.
Governor Hogan is expected to provide an update on the state’s vaccination efforts at 4 pm.
Drive-thru, no-appointment vaccinations are available at the @SixFlagsDC, Regency Furniture Stadium, & Ripken Stadium.
