Maryland on Cusp of 3 Millionth Fully Vaccinated Resident

Maryland is nearing its 3 millionth resident to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus — a significant milestone in the state’s effort to return to normalcy on the eve of summer.

More than 2.9 million residents are now fully vaccinated, with roughly 70% of the adult population having received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, according to state health department data.

The state’s coronavirus metrics are also trending in the right direction. Maryland’s positivity rate dropped to 1.57% on Sunday, well below the recommended mark of 5%.

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19, the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, fell to 346, down 29 from Saturday.

Maryland recorded 249 new COVID-19 cases Sunday, up from 185 the day before but still far fewer than the pandemic’s peak around the holiday season in December and January, when upwards of 2,000 daily cases were reported regularly.

Eight coronavirus-related deaths were reported Sunday, bringing Maryland’s toll to 9,395 since the pandemic’s start in early 2020.

Gov. Larry Hogan earlier this month lifted the state’s remaining capacity limits on indoor and outdoor venues and restrictions on indoor and outdoor dining, citing the pace of vaccinations and subsequent declines in key health metrics.
