ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland health official says all of the state's hospitals are expected to receive some COVID-19 vaccines in the next two weeks to begin vaccinating critical frontline staff.

Dr. Jinlene Chan gave an update on vaccine distribution at a news conference Tuesday. The acting deputy health secretary says nursing homes also will begin vaccinations within the next two weeks. The University of Maryland Medical Center was the first hospital in Maryland to receive the Pfizer vaccine on Monday.

Chan says Maryland could receive up to 300,000 vaccine doses by the end of this month.
