Garrett Among Counties Named in Arc Maryland Lawsuit for Alleged Vaccine Discrimination

March 10th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Arc Maryland filed a lawsuit Monday alleging Garrett County, the city of Baltimore and four other Maryland counties have engaged in discrimination against people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by denying them opportunities for access to COVID-19 vaccines.

The suit claims the websites the locales use to spread information about COVID-19 vaccines do not include intellectually and developmentally disabled people as eligible for the vaccines under Phase 1B of Maryland’s vaccine plan.
