Thousands of Marylanders signed up for vaccine appointments at M&T Bank Stadium, only to have them canceled after the University of Maryland Medical System said the booking link was made “inadvertently” public. Michael Schwartzberg, a spokesman for the hospital network, said most people who booked appointments did not know the link was invalid. Individuals have since been notified that their vaccines were canceled because eligibility couldn’t be confirmed. The vaccine registration link was widely shared before UMMS could shut it down, Schwartzberg said.
