Lt Governor Says COVID Vaccine in Maryland by Mid December

December 2nd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s lieutenant governor says the state could get a small amount of a coronavirus vaccine as soon as mid-December. Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford made the announcement Wednesday at the start of a Board of Public Works meeting. Rutherford says health care workers will get the vaccine first. After that, workers in nursing homes and assisted living facilities will be a priority. The Republican emphasized that not everyone will be able to get the vaccine at first. However, he says when the general public can get vaccinated, people should. He says a vaccine might not be available to the general public until the spring, “if we’re fortunate.”
