Gov. Hogan: 80% of Marylanders vaccinated against COVID-19

1280 Vax Milestone

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Governor Larry Hogan announced on Thursday that the state of Maryland has officially surpassed a major milestone of vaccinating 80% of Marylanders 12 and older against COVID-19.

We’re told to date, Maryland has reported over 7.5 million vaccinations. 80% of Marylanders 12 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine, while 81.2% of Marylanders 18 and older have received at least one dose. 94.8% of Marylanders 65 and older have received at least one dose.

“Maryland has not only already passed our goal of vaccinating 80% of adults 18 and older, we have now surpassed 80% of all eligible Marylanders vaccinated against COVID-19,” said Governor Hogan. “Our primary mission remains getting first shots in arms, so we can ensure as many Marylanders as possible are protected and no arm is left behind. The vaccines are very safe, very effective, and they are widely available through pharmacies, primary care providers, and mobile clinics across the state.”
