White Maryland residents have gotten 4 times the COVID vaccine doses as Black people, a gap not improving with increased eligibility

White Maryland residents have gotten 4 times the COVID vaccine doses as Black people, a gap not improving with increased eligibility

In Maryland, white people are getting four times as many COVID vaccine doses as Black people. White Marylanders have received more than four times as many doses of coronavirus vaccine as Black residents, state data shows — a stark racial gap that has persisted even as more doses have arrived in the state and more people have become eligible to receive them. Early discrepancies could reflect the state’s early prioritization of medical professionals and first responders, according to experts and state officials. Some cite distrustful of the medical community. But as eligibility expanded to...

Maryland opens M&T Bank Stadium COVID-19 mass vaccination site, offering 250 doses on first day

New banners hang over RavensWalk and on the side of M&T Bank Stadium. A check-in tent has replaced the metal detectors. And when you take the escalator or elevator up to the club level, pharmacists, not bartenders, staff the bar in the middle. The Ravens stadium, Maryland’s third state-run mass COVID-19 vaccination site, opened Thursday, offering just 250 doses by appointment at 74 club-level vaccination stations. The site has 500 doses a day scheduled for this weekend, could begin offering as many as 2,000 a day next week, and has the capacity to give 10,000 per day as Maryland’s vaccine...

‘A slow takeoff’: 1st batch of coronavirus vaccines for Maryland only enough for half of front-line health care workers

‘A slow takeoff’: 1st batch of coronavirus vaccines for Maryland only enough for half of front-line health care workers

Hogan seemed briefly overtaken by emotion when he said the state has seen its youngest coronavirus victim – a 1-year-old boy. Gov.

At least 20 Maryland MVA workers test positive for coronavirus; 1 has died, union says

MTA cancels proposal to slash bus service in Baltimore after heavy criticism; will cut MARC, commuter bus service instead

Service will be adjusted “as needed to meet demand,” MTA chief Kevin Quinn said. Advertisement “The message has been clear: Core bus service in the...
