As vaccination rates among seniors decline, Maryland pitches ‘ground game’ to reach them

March 30, 2021

With vaccine supplies increasing and eligibility expanding this week, Maryland health officials fear that the coronavirus vaccination effort is moving forward with too few seniors having sought the shot. Nearly 70 percent of the state’s residents ages 65 and older have received at least one dose since they became eligible in late January, but the vaccination rate among that population has plummeted in recent weeks, officials said.
