Maryland will open six new coronavirus mass-vaccination sites by the end of next month, Gov. Larry Hogan said.

Beginning the week of April 5, two mass vaccination sites will open at Montgomery College’s campus in Germantown and in Baltimore County’s Timonium Fairgrounds, Hogan said at a news conference Tuesday.

The Republican governor said two sites will be opening in Anne Arundel and Frederick counties but didn’t specify their locations.

Hogan said two sites in Harford and Howard counties will open by the end of April, culminating in 12 mass-vaccination sites throughout the state.

“We have over 2,500 points of distribution and will grow by hundreds of doctors’ offices and pharmacies in addition to expanding the reach of community clinics through our equity task force operation,” he said. “I want to once again strongly encourage all Marylanders to please get vaccinated when it is your turn.”

As of Wednesday, Maryland has administered roughly 2.3 million vaccine doses, with more than 816,000 residents fully vaccinated, according to a state-run tracker.
