DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. — Maryland’s vaccination numbers are steadily increasing.

15,000 people got their first shot Tuesday. 7,600 more people got their second shot. Those numbers, combined with data over the past seven days, means Maryland is now averaging more than 20,000 vaccinations every day.

Governor Hogan visited the District Heights Giant Pharmacy vaccination site in Prince George's County Wednesday afternoon.

Hogan says Maryland has a six-day supply of vaccines. On Tuesday, February 2, the state will get a 16% increase from the federal government. He also says the government is promising a 50% increase in the coming weeks.

"When we get enough supply of vaccines, we're going to have them at every single pharmacy and every doctor’s office everywhere,” said Hogan. “But right now, again we have a couple hundred thousand vaccines and several million people that need them."

As of Wednesday, 419,579 vaccine doses have been administered in Maryland.
