ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WDVM) — Governor Hogan issued an executive order that will require all providers in the state of Maryland to report data to ImmuNet within 24 hours after vaccines are administered.
“Our message to those responsible for vaccinations is clear. Either use the doses you have been allocated or they will be redirected to another facility or provider where they will be used immediately.”
As part of Phase 1A, the state has allocated 270, 150 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to hospitals, nursing homes, and local health departments. Hogan shared that some groups in the state have already begun the distribution of round of two vaccinations.
Based on the recommendations of the Federal Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices, Phase 1B will now include all Marylanders over the age of 75. Phase 1B is also expected to include special needs group homes, high-risk inmates, developmentally disabled populations, continuity of government vaccinations, as well as teachers, child care, and education staff.
The Maryland Health Department reports 1,956 new COVID-19 cases in the state in the last 24 hours and a statewide positivity rate of 9.19%.
“We are all in this together, we will get through this together. We are Maryland strong.”
