Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says the state should not expect to see the newly-approved Johnson and Johnson vaccine until later this month. During a press conference yesterday afternoon, the Governor introduced Dr. Robert Redfield, formerly of the CDC, as Maryland’s senior advisor for public health. Provided there are enough vaccines for the state, several more mass vaccination sites have been planned; the closest site in Western Maryland will be at the Premium Outlets in Hagerstown, which hopes to be operational by the end of the month. Governor Hogan also commented that although Maryland ranked near the bottom in its vaccination efforts, the federal government allocated several thousand doses to Maryland; however, they did not send them to the state, which accounted for Maryland’s low ranking in the disbursement of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
