Maryland surpasses 1 million COVID-19 booster shots


Governor Hogan announced yesterday that the State of Maryland has surpassed 1 million COVID-19 booster shots. All Marylanders 18 and older are eligible for boosters. Both federal and state health officials recommend that all adults get COVID-19 booster shots. Hogan said that the state has both the supply and the capacity to provide a free vaccine to anyone who wants one.


To date, the state has administered 9,395,285 COVID-19 vaccines, including 1,004,758 booster shots. According to official CDC data, 99.9% of seniors and 88.9% of adults have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The state also has administered 117,644 vaccinations to 5- to 11-year-olds, representing 22.7% of that age group.
