ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On the same day Maryland entered Phase 2A of the vaccination roll-out process, Governor Hogan made some modifications to Phase 2B starting March 30.

The next phase will now allow residents 16 and older with disabilities to be eligible for a vaccine. Previously, only those at increased risk with underlying medical conditions were eligible under 2B.

Pre-registration for that is now open.

Phases 2C and 3 are expected to start April 13 and 27 respectively.

Hogan on Tuesday said six additional mass vaccination sites would be in operation by the end of April, which would make 12 throughout the state.

The Timonium Fairgrounds and Montgomery College in Germantown, are the latest locations that will transition into mass clinics, beginning the week of April 5.

According to Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman, Navy Stadium will be the home of another site about a week later.

But the Governor's Office says that has not yet been finalized.

Both Pittman and Baltimore County Executive, Johnny Olszewski, released statements on the news.

Three other sites in Frederick, Harford, and Howard Counties are expected to follow.

Final details of where those will be are still being hammered out.

As of Tuesday, about 24.01 percent of the state's population received their first dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, compared to 12.304 percent who've gotten their second. Less than one percent (57,509 people) have gotten the new one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Here's a look at who is eligible to get a vaccine and when.
