Half of all Marylanders have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, state says
By - f1sh98
Woohoo! Good job everyone. Cases are in the double digits, deaths are in the single digits, hospitalizations are at March 2020 levels.
Seems like they say any likely Covid surge in the winter will be regional and so let’s try to vaccinate enough so we will not be one of those regions.
Same thing with the summer when people stay inside to avoid the oppressive heat.
I’m somewhat worried that two areas with lower vaccination numbers are PG county and Baltimore city, but I’m hopeful we can focus more resources in those specific areas to boost our vaccination numbers
I know soooo many people in PG county who aren’t getting vaccinated because “they don’t trust it” it’s really annoying
I think the only folks still wearing masks in public are ones who got the vaccine..
I think that is pretty much true
Yup, I’m vaccinated and I still wear my mask.
Me too and I'm not stopping anytime soon..
49.8% according to this source
This is dated June 7 which is yesterday. Today we went over the 50% mark.
Where do you see that date?
It says “Last updated 2 days ago” on the graph
Just check it again. It is now at 50%
Ah. Glad I asked. It perpetually says that though I have seen it update several times a day.
So what’s going on with the other half?
Can't (underage or legit reason), won't, or had their first shot.
Well that’s tautological.
“Why aren’t people doing X?”
“Because they having done X, can’t do X, or don’t want to do X”.
What explanation did you want?
We can rule out "can't" - they can't (yet or won't ever be able to).
So, for "haven't" - either they've done their first and are waiting on the second, or they haven't made it a priority, or they want to but haven't been able to (house bound, no time, no nearby option?)
For "won't"... Well, they don't want to. We've tried to tempt them with lottery money, and the promise of not having to wear a mask. Or they're idiots and will never get it.
Well my comment originally was rhetorical, as in what’s wrong with people who won’t.
Kudos to Gov. Hogan and Maryland for not going down the rabbit hole of "one shot" and tracking fully vaccinated.
Is Larry not wearing glasses lately? Has he also lost weight? Something about him in this photo is screaming "national candidate", comparedto his usual, more frumpy look...?
Very sure this isn’t true but hey who knows I’m from PG county so all of maryland for me is as far as about laurel💀
