TOWSON, Md. — More people in Baltimore County have been vaccinated than any other jurisdiction in the state. That’s according to County executive Johnny Olszewski.

Baltimore County’s Department of Health is in phase 1B. People who are 75 years and older, people in assisted living, independent living, developmental disabilities or behavioral health group homes, and other congregate facilities can now get the vaccine.

Also eligible, high-risk inmates, government staff, teachers and support staff, and childcare providers.

Phase 1C begins on Monday. Phase 1C includes anyone between 65 and 74 and essential workers, including those in lab services, agriculture, manufacturing, and the postal service.

"At this particular time, we do not have enough vaccine to give to everyone right now,” said Baltimore County Health Officer Dr. Gregory branch.

Residents who want to be vaccinated must complete a registration request form. Once they become eligible and when a vaccine is available, they’ll be contacted by county staff.
