Baltimore, MD – With Phase 2 of Maryland’s vaccine distribution plan set to take effect, the Maryland Department of Health continues to increase direct vaccine allocations to the state’s 24 local health departments. Overall, allocations to local health departments have increased by 54% since the week of February 8.
The state allocates vaccines to mass vaccination sites as well as an expanding network of vaccine providers within each state jurisdiction, including hospitals, pharmacies, local health departments, primary care physicians, and community health centers. More than 350 providers are listed at covidvax.maryland.gov.
“We appreciate the critical role that our local health departments play in the vaccination effort, especially when it comes to ensuring equitable access to vaccines,” said MDH Acting Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “Expanding capacity, access, and increasing vaccine confidence remain top priorities as we move into Phase 2 and work to ensure that we do not leave anyone behind.”
