Md. Governor Receives Coronavirus Vaccine

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan publicly received the first round of the coronavirus vaccine Monday as the state entered the next phase of its vaccination efforts.

The Republican governor, first lady Yumi Hogan and Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford all received the first of the two-shot vaccine during a news conference at the State House in Annapolis, with the second round to come in the following weeks.

Hogan on Saturday underwent a procedure to remove cancerous cells from his face after being diagnosed with early-stage skin cancer. He previously had been declared cancer-free in 2015 after battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The state on Monday began the 1B phase of its vaccination plan, which includes teachers and residents over the age of 75. Up to this point, vaccination efforts had largely focused on first responders, nursing home residents and staff.
