Announced by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on July 12th:

Howard County leads the State with 83.6% of eligible residents 12+ who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 78.4% are fully vaccinated, according to the Maryland Department of Health. Howard County continues to lead the state with our vaccination progress, but we will continue to reach out to those who have not yet received a vaccine.

If you haven’t already received your shot – now’s the time. Recent data shows 90% of cases are among unvaccinated persons and 100% of deaths are among unvaccinated residents. Encourage your family and friends to visit to find a clinic nearby.

For the areas I watch and write about for my readers:

  • Howard County
    • At least one dose: 83.6% (1st)
    • Fully Vaccinated 78.4% (1st)
  • Carroll County
    • At Least One dose: 68.0% (7th)
    • Fully Vaccinated: 64.1% (6th)
