Long lines, frustration on first day of walk-up vaccine shots in Hagerstown

April 7, 2021

Excitement gave way to frustration outside a mass vaccination site in Hagerstown, Md., on Tuesday, as hundreds of people seeking the coronavirus vaccine without appointments were turned away and others were left waiting as long as seven hours for their shots. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Monday announced that the Hagerstown site would begin accepting walk-ups without appointments, spurring hundreds of residents from across the state to arrive at the location Tuesday morning — the same day eligibility at the state’s mass vaccination sites expanded to allow any Maryland resident over 16 to get a shot.
