Howard County remains the only jurisdiction in the state to surpass 80% of eligible residents fully vaccinated

Shared by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on August 8th:

Howard County remains the only jurisdiction in the state to surpass 80% of eligible residents fully vaccinated. In July alone approximately 15,000 doses were administered to Howard County residents. We continue to lead with 86% of eligible residents 12+ who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 80.8% are fully vaccinated, according to the Maryland Department of Health.

The single most effective way to reduce your chance of hospitalization or death from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. Vaccinations are widely available and free. Encourage your family and friends to visit vaccine.howardcountymd.gov to find a clinic nearby.
