Maryland eclipses 2 million fully vaccinated as several COVID indicators decline
More than 2 million people in Maryland are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, state health officials reported Saturday.

Here’s where other key pandemic metrics stood: Maryland added 939 new coronavirus infections, with the state’s case count reaching 448,340 since health officials began to track the virus in March 2020.
