While Maryland has said it’s allocating the COVID-19 vaccines to counties based on population, state health officials notified counties this week that they can distribute doses based on how well they “comply” with state directives and how efficiently they can get shot into arms. The notification was included in a letter Maryland’s acting health secretary sent Tuesday to county leaders in response to a letter the Maryland Association of Counties sent Monday to Gov. Larry Hogan.
