New Study Ranks Maryland’s COVID-19 Response Among “Most Effective” in Nation

A new study from the University of California, Berkeley ranks Maryland’s COVID-19 response as among the “most effective” in the nation.

Thanks to Governor Hogan’s decisive and balanced approach to the pandemic, Maryland’s health metrics fared better than most other states, even when compared to many states that imposed stricter and more onerous mandates.

This new finding comes as Maryland has opened up vaccine eligibility to all Marylanders above the age of 16. As of today, Maryland providers have administered over 3.1 million COVID-19 vaccines and are averaging 60,885 shots per day, while 77.5% of Marylanders 65 and older have already received a shot.
