Hogan to Update Vaccine Distribution Status; Live Coverage on WCBC

January 14th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Larry Hogan is set to deliver another update on Maryland's COVID-19 vaccination strategy.

The news conference will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday in the State House.

In recent days, the governor has expressed worries about the state's use of the vaccine outpacing supplies. The state is currently in Phase 1A of its vaccination plan, with shots going to health workers, first responders and residents of long-term care facilities.

Last week, the governor announced he would leverage the Maryland National Guard to assist in the logistics and administration of vaccines. He also announced tweaks to the state's vaccine priorities, putting teachers closer to the front of the line.
