Hogan: I’ll Get Vaccinated After MD Front-Line Workers Receive COVID Shots

December 22nd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Governor Hogan says he still plans to get his COVID-19 vaccine shot on camera but doesn't want to jump ahead of first responders and front-line health care workers. The 64-year-old Hogan is a cancer survivor and thus considered to be someone at high risk of severe illness should he contract the virus. The governor told WBAL he expects to get the shot "sometime after the first of the year."

The Food and Drug Administration has granted emergency use authorizations to two vaccines, while others are still in development.

Hogan also said he is taking his own advice by not welcoming his extended family to Government House and by doing Zoom calls with his children and grandchildren during the holidays.
