How Maryland is working to vaccinate its homeless population

April 27, 2021

This month, on April 6, Gov. Larry Hogan (R) announced that all Marylanders over the age of 16 were eligible to receive the long-sought COVID-19 vaccine. While the news gave the state its first true glimpse at a possible return to normalcy, some of the most vulnerable communities are still struggling to gain access to that same hope.
