ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Larry Hogan provided an update on Maryland's COVID-19 vaccination plan on Monday.

All Marylanders 16 and older can get vaccinated at any of the state’s mass vaccination sites beginning Tuesday morning.

By April 12, Marylanders age 16 and older will be eligible for a vaccine from all providers.

Marylanders 16 or 17 years of age will only be able to utilize clinics that are providing the Pfizer vaccine, as it is the only vaccine that is currently approved by the FDA for ages 16 and older.

Three new mass vaccination sites are opening this week: FEMA site at the Greenbelt Metro Station (Prince George’s), Maryland State Fairgrounds (Baltimore Co), and Montgomery College Campus in Germantown (Montgomery).

Next week, two new sites are opening: Frederick Community College (Frederick Co) and Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Anne Arundel).

The state is also opening a mass vaccination site at Ripken Stadium the week of April 19, and at the Mall in Columbia immediately after that.

On Tuesday, the state will be launching a no-appointment line at the Hagerstown site, and next week at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore City as well.

Gov. Hogan stated that pre-registration continues to be the best, easiest, and fastest way to reserve an appointment and to ensure that a vaccine is available to you.
