The Maryland Department of Health said it has increased vaccine allocations for local health departments to coincide with the new vaccine distribution phase.

Phase 2B, which is expected to begin on March 30, will expand eligibility to Marylanders 16 and older with underlying medical conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19 illness.

On April 13, the state expects to move into Phase 2C which will include Marylanders 55 and older, as well as essential workers in critical industries.

All Marylanders age 16 and older are expected to be eligible by April 27 when the state plans to move into Phase3.
