On Monday, Governor Larry Hogan reported Maryland reached its goal of vaccinating 70% of adults, a key milestone in the state.
“Our health and economic recovery continues to outpace the nation. Of course, our work is not yet done, and with a summer of mobile clinics ahead, we will continue to do all we can to make sure no arm is left behind. If you still need to get vaccinated, we encourage you to visit any of our thousands of distribution points across the state," Gov. Hogan said.
In Maryland, our goal was to get 70% of adults vaccinated by Memorial Day, and that’s exactly what we've done. Thank you to all of our vaccinators, and to the millions of Marylanders who have stepped up to get the vaccine. pic.twitter.com/LuuIQqi3VY— Governor Larry Hogan (@GovLarryHogan) May 31, 2021
