VACCINE MILESTONE: Maryland Vaccinates 75% of Adults by Fourth of July
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced that, according to official CDC data, Maryland has achieved the milestone of vaccinating 75% of adults with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“President Biden set a national goal of vaccinating 70% of adults by the Fourth of July. Maryland set an ambitious goal of reaching that milestone by Memorial Day, and we did exactly that,” said Governor Hogan. “Now, with the help of our $2 million vaccine lottery, we have vaccinated 75% of adults by the Fourth of July—outpacing the nation and many other states. We are committed to leaving no arm behind.”
To date, Maryland has reported 6,894,069 total vaccinations. It is the last day to get vaccinated to be eligible for tomorrow’s grand prize drawing in the state’s $2 million Vax Cash Promotion.
