Governor Hogan Discusses Vaccines, Violent Crime, Legislative Session on WBAL Radio’s “The C4 and Bryan Nehman Show”
ANNAPOLIS, MD (STL.News) During an appearance on “The C4 and Bryan Nehman Show”, Governor Larry Hogan discussed Maryland’s continued progress on COVID-19 vaccinations, the 2021 legislative session, and violent crime in Baltimore City.
“The good news is, we’ve now hit 3.2 million vaccines. We did 76,000 of them yesterday. We’ve already got 78% of all the people over 65 vaccinated, [and] 48% of all the people over 18, so we’re almost 80% of all the folks that were at the highest risk, and we’re almost 50% of everybody that’s eligible, so we’re making great progress. Just yesterday we registered 100,000 more people for our mass vax sites with pre-registration. We’ve done 650,000 of those already, so we’re making progress.
“We’ve said from the beginning we’re going to build an infrastructure. All we were waiting for was the vaccines, and we’ve got now 3,000 points of distribution: 485 pharmacies, we’re sending them out to doctors’ offices, we have more mass vax sites than I think any other state. We just got one of the few in the country that FEMA’s put up with us.
