Maryland Gov. Hogan, a Cancer Survivor, Receives COVID Booster Shot

Maryland Gov. and cancer survivor Larry Hogan said he’s already received a third dose of a coronavirus vaccine on the advice of his doctors.

Hogan said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he wanted Marylanders to get the booster shot as soon as possible and that the federal recommendation of waiting eight months before getting it was too long.

“Matter of fact, I did just this week, you know, [on] strong advice of our team of epidemiologists and my own oncologist,” he told CBS correspondent Major Garrett. “You know, the federal government said that people that are immunocompromised should get it. I had a cancer of the immune system, so I got it on Monday. I’m feeling great.”

The Republican governor, who was treated for stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015, was eligible under federal guidelines to receive the booster due to his prior illness.

Federal officials announced this week their plan to start administering booster shots beginning the week of Sept. 20.
