Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is encouraging all eligible people in Maryland to get a COVID-19 booster vaccine.

“If you are confused about boosters, you are not alone,” said Governor Hogan. “In spite of that, Maryland health officials and our state team have spent the last several months building the infrastructure for a statewide operation for boosters. We have also already launched a vigorous outreach effort for those Marylanders who are currently eligible for a booster shot.”

Maryland data shows about 50,000 people in Maryland are eligible to get booster shots. For people who initially received the Pfizer vaccine, the eligibility factors inlcude people who are 65 years old and older, people 18 and older with underlying conditions and people over 18 who work or live in high-risk settings. Those settings include health care workers and grocery store workers.
