Maryland Expands Vaccine Eligibility to Residents 60 and Older on Tuesday

Marylanders who are 60 and older can now book an appointment for a coronavirus vaccination.

The state moved Tuesday into Phase 2A, which focuses on older residents. Gov. Larry Hogan said about 90% of the state’s coronavirus deaths have been residents older than 60.

Additionally, a new vaccination site is slated to open Tuesday at the First United Methodist Church of Hyattsville, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

On March 30, the state is scheduled to enter Phase 2B, which will allow those 16 and older with qualifying medical conditions to register for vaccination. Phase 2C will start on April 13, when residents 55 and older and essential workers in critical industries will become eligible.

On April 27, the state will enter Phase 3, allowing all Marylanders ages 16 and older to get vaccinated.

Residents can either preregister at a mass vaccination site or find a nearby vaccination clinic.

As of Tuesday, Maryland has administered roughly 2.25 million vaccine doses, and more than 801,000 residents are now fully vaccinated, according to state-kept data.
