Governor Hogan Urges Biden Administration To Make Booster Shots Available Immediately For Seniors And Vulnerable Populations

As Maryland’s COVID-19 positivity rate and cases per 100 thousand continue to be among the lowest in the nation, Governor Hogan is calling on the Biden Administration to take action to help contain the Delta variant surge across the country. Calling the Biden administration’s timetables “not soon enough and not good enough,” at a press conference earlier today, Governor Hogan urged the federal government to make booster shots available immediately for seniors and vulnerable populations, advance full FDA approval of vaccines, and expedite approval of vaccines for 5- to 11-year olds.

According to Governor Hogan, “Governors across the country have become increasingly frustrated with the confusing messaging and conflicting guidance from the White House and federal government agencies regarding booster shots for the wider population. This is one of a number of areas where we are pressing the Biden administration for action.”
