ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials have announced a plan to improve equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in Baltimore amid criticism about the state’s rollout.

Gov. Larry Hogan announced Monday that the Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital will put an emphasis on vaccinating the most vulnerable communities in Baltimore. It involves a public-private partnership of the state health department, the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The governor’s office says leadership at the field hospital has been working closely with hospital-based community health teams to actively encourage eligible individuals who live in high-vulnerability ZIP codes to register for vaccination.
