Maryland facing shortage of second COVID vaccine doses, health secretary says

February 2, 2021

Maryland is facing a shortage of second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, the state’s acting health secretary said Monday, putting hospitals at risk of not being able to complete the regimen of many people who have already received the first dose, including front-line workers. Maryland Acting Secretary of Health Dennis R. Schrader said during a virtual Senate Vaccine Oversight Workgroup hearing on Monday that the shortages were causing “a lot of angst” in the department, and that the state believes the allotment numbers were miscommunicated during the presidential administration transition.
