Governor Larry Hogan announced that the State of Maryland has surpassed 9 million COVID-19 vaccinations. “We have now administered our nine millionth vaccine as part of one of the most successful vaccination campaigns in the country,” said Governor Hogan. “The state has a robust network of providers, and we continue to have both the supply and the capacity to provide a vaccine or a booster shot to anyone who needs one. We will continue to work to get those last remaining 0.6% of seniors and 12.3% of adults in our state vaccinated, and as we now work to get more of our school age children vaccinated.” To date, Maryland has reported 9,028,641 vaccinations, including 779,438 booster shots. 99.4% of Marylanders 65 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. 87.7% of Marylanders 18 and older have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
