All Maryland Hospitals Set to Get Some Vaccines Within 2 Weeks

All Maryland hospitals are expected to receive some COVID-19 vaccines in the next two weeks to begin vaccinating critical frontline staff, a state health official said Tuesday.

Dr. Jinlene Chan, Maryland’s acting deputy health secretary, said nursing homes also will begin vaccinations within the next two weeks. The University of Maryland Medical Center was the first hospital in Maryland to receive the Pfizer vaccine on Monday.

“With vaccine distribution now beginning in our state, we have finally reached a turning point and we are able to see the sun rising on the horizon even if that horizon may still seem a little bit distant right now," Gov. Larry Hogan said at a news conference.

Maryland is set to receive 155,000 doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines initially. Chan said Maryland could receive up to 300,000 vaccine doses by the end of this month. She said the availability could change from week to week.
