ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says the state has administered 50,000 vaccines in a single day for the first time. Hogan said Saturday that the state delivered 50,484 doses of COVID-19 vaccines over the past 24 hours, setting a record for the state. Maryland also reached 1.5 million total vaccinations. About 6 million people live in the state. Nearly half of all Marylanders age 65 and over have received at least their first dose of the vaccine. Hogan said the state has the ability to administer 100,000 doses a day if it can ever get that many doses from the federal government.
