Maryland residents no longer need an appointment to get vaccinated at any of the state’s 13 mass coronavirus vaccination sites.

Gov. Larry Hogan said Wednesday that allowing walk-ups at various sites have helped boost the state’s number of vaccinations.

“We are in a new phase of our vaccination effort where we are focused on making sure that no arm is left behind,” the Republican governor said, The Associated Press reported.

As of Thursday, Maryland has administered roughly 5 million of its 6.5 million available vaccine doses, and more than 2.2 million residents have been fully vaccinated, according to state data.
