95% of Marylanders 65 and older vaccinated

Maryland hit a new vaccine milestone Tuesday in the fight against COVID-19: 95% of residents 65 and older have gotten at least one dose, Gov. Larry Hogan said in a news release.

“As one of the most vaccinated states in the country, we continue to achieve significant milestones and outpace the national rates across the board, and we are much better prepared to withstand the delta variant surge,” Hogan said.

“Getting first shots in arms — especially among our most vulnerable populations — continues to be our primary mission. The vaccines are very safe, very effective, and they are widely available through pharmacies, primary care providers and mobile clinics across the state.”

And according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data:

  • 95% of Marylanders 65 and older have received at least one dose.
  • 81.5% of Marylanders 18 and older have received at least one dose.
  • 80.4% of Marylanders 12 and older have received at least one dose.
