Maryland’s prisons have teemed with coronavirus. Now, the most vulnerable inmates are getting COVID vaccines.

March 10, 2021

Nearly nine in 10 Maryland prison inmates who are over 65 or have serious underlying medical conditions have received at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine, according to Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services data. And the vast majority of corrections officers have been vaccinated as well. Those are silver linings for a system that for the last year has been racked with far greater incidence of COVID-19 than the general public has. But advocates are calling for more transparency and greater efforts to educate inmates on the vaccines.
