Annapolis, MD— Governor Larry Hogan and First Lady Yumi Hogan received their second COVID-19 vaccine boosters today, as they continue to encourage eligible Marylanders to get boosted for maximum protection against the virus.

The B-roll of vaccinations is available here.

“One of the reasons we have been so successful in the fight against COVID is our commitment to leave no arm behind and to vaccinate and stimulate as many Marylanders as possible,” Governor Hogan said. “If you are now eligible for a second booster, we encourage you to pick one up at your local pharmacy or one of our hundreds of vendors across the state. Learning to live with the virus is largely about doing use common sense and take the right precautions in our daily lives.”

The booster shots were administered by vaccinators at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). The governor presented a National Nurses Week proclamation to Karen Doyle, UMMC’s chief nursing officer.

Nearly 11.8 million COVID-19 vaccinations statewide. To date, Maryland has administered nearly 11.8 million COVID-19 vaccines, including more than 2.3 million boosters.
