Hogan Says 99% of Md. Seniors Vaccinated Against COVID

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says 99% of state residents 65 and older have now received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

The governor, citing data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the state also is among the top 10 for administering COVID-19 booster shots for seniors.

“From our oldest to youngest eligible, we continue to lead one of the most successful vaccination campaigns in the country,” Hogan said in a statement over the weekend. “We have gotten to this point by listening to the experts and by following the science, and that is exactly what we will continue to do as we work to get those last remaining 1% of seniors, and the 12.7% of remaining adults in our state vaccinated, and as we now work to get more of our school-age children vaccinated.”

Maryland has administered nearly 700,000 booster shots overall, with roughly 88% of adults having received at least one dose of a vaccine.

Hogan also said the state has already administered over 50,000 vaccinations to children ages 5 to 11 since the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was approved for that age group earlier this month.
