Schrader confirmed as Maryland health secretary despite Senate’s concerns

April 5, 2021

As acting secretary since December, Schrader oversaw Maryland’s vaccine rollout — a rocky process that at first lagged behind other states’ but improved as more doses became available throughout the spring. The Senate voted 45-2 to confirm Schrader, whom Gov. Larry Hogan nominated to the position of health secretary in January.
