Maryland vaccine update
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says there’s 'good news and some not-so-good news' on the availability of vaccines for the state. He toured a new vaccine equity site at a Prince George’s County church on Tuesday as he faces greater calls for more mass vaccination sites, especially in Montgomery County.
GERMANTOWN, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Montgomery County – which saw the first COVID-19 cases in the region a year ago – could soon have its own mass vaccination site, according to local officials.
