In a short-term blow to Maryland’s vaccination efforts, the state will not get any more doses of the new Baltimore-made Johnson & Johnson vaccine from the federal government until March 18th—although the state will get slightly more doses of Pfizer and Moderna. “It takes a while to ramp up production. Because we were so desperately in need of vaccines, they simply pushed [them] out. They’ve been manufacturing these for many months waiting for the approval, and then they just shipped out every single one they had in the one week,” Gov. Larry Hogan said during a news conference in Annapolis Tuesday. “And now they have to catch back up again, and the next shipment wouldn’t come for another 18 days.”
