The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that reporters be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1C of distribution but Maryland has not yet begun to prioritize members of that profession for vaccination. “While our highest priority right now is vaccinating seniors and the severely immunocompromised, we have heard from a number of the members of the media interested in getting vaccinated. Federal guidelines make members of the media eligible under Phase 1C, and as more supply becomes available, we will expand our focus on occupation-based vaccinations,” Gov. Larry Hogan’s communications director, Michael Ricci, emailed MarylandReporter.com on Monday.
