Hogan doubles down on Baltimore COVID vaccine comments as data reveals most city doses going to noncity residents

Hogan doubles down on Baltimore COVID vaccine comments as data reveals most city doses going to noncity residents

While Baltimore had received 114,714 doses of the vaccine as of the time of Hogan’s remarks Thursday, just 38.5% of those immunizations — 44,193 doses — were given to city residents, according to Maryland Department of Health data released by Baltimore Mayor...
