January 5th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan announced Tuesday that nearly all of the COVID-19 vaccine doses allocated to Maryland have been distributed, but nearly three-quarters have not yet been administered. During a news conference, Hogan said 270,150 vaccine doses of the 273,875 doses allocated to the state by the federal government — 98.7% — have been distributed. Of those, 76,916 vaccinations — 28.5% — have been given to Marylanders.  According to the lated data just 1.27% of the state’s population has been vaccinated as of Tuesday, the Maryland Department of Health reported. Calling the process a “long haul” and a “massive undertaking,” Hogan outlined the current federal allocation process. Under current production and allocation rates, he said the state is getting around 72,000 doses per week. At that rate, the state would have around 1.8 million doses by the end of May — around 30% of the state’s population
