Maryland health officials said they expect to open the state’s first two COVID-19 mass vaccination sites Friday in Baltimore and Prince George’s County, though officials already are warning there are limited doses available and to expect a wait for an appointment. “Mass vaccination sites are a critical element in the statewide network of vaccination options that we are establishing,” said Dennis R. Schrader, acting state health secretary, in a statement. “These sites will promote equitable access to vaccines by supplementing the sites operated by local health departments, hospitals, pharmacies, and other local partners.”
