Vaccination rollout ‘test’ could decide health chief’s confirmation says Md. Senate leader

March 29, 2021

Senate President Bill Ferguson (D-Baltimore City) said on Friday that the fate of Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr.’s acting health secretary, Dennis R. Schrader, could hinge on how well his agency handles an expected surge in COVID-19 vaccines. Schrader has said that Maryland’s distribution network was built for a time when the state is receiving far more doses than have been available so far. The state’s system consists of high-volume drive-through sites, hospitals, pharmacies, local health departments, nursing homes and other locations. Schrader said Maryland is now able to do 500,000 doses per week.
