Howard County continues to lead the state with 81.8% of residents age 12+ fully vaccinated against COVID-19

Posted by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on August 22nd:

According to the Maryland Department of Health, 87.2% of Howard County residents 12+ have received at least one dose and 81.8% are fully vaccinated. Howard County continues to lead the state with our vaccination progress, and remains the only jurisdiction in Maryland with more than 80% of eligible residents fully vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated is the single most effective way to prevent hospitalization or death from COVID-19. Encourage your family and friends to visit https://vaccine.howardcountymd.gov to find a clinic nearby.
