Maryland has reached a new milestone in the competition for vaccination against COVID-19.

As of Monday, the state said more than 70% of adults had received at least one coronavirus vaccine, Governor Larry Hogan said in a statement.

“This is a big deal,” Hogan said in a statement. “President Biden has set a goal of immunizing 70% of adults in the country by July 4. Here in Maryland. The state said it wanted 70% of adults to be vaccinated by Memorial Day, and that’s exactly what it was. That was an ambitious goal, but our healthcare heroes are once again this. Faced with the opportunity, millions of Marylanders stood up to get the vaccine. “

White House Chief of Staff Ronald Crane and COVID-19 Data Director Cyrus Sharper congratulated the state on this achievement.

California also exceeded 70% on Monday. The two states are the 11th and 12th states.

DC is 51.2%. Virginia, 54.7%.
