ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland is entering the next phase of the state’s COVID-19 vaccination eligibility.

Maryland enters Phase 2B on Tuesday to enable Marylanders age 16 and older with underlying medical conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19 illness. Acting Maryland Health Secretary Dennis Schrader told a panel of state lawmakers on Monday that the state will continue to prioritize vaccinating people 65 and older.

Separately, a Senate committee voted Monday to send Schrader’s nomination to be the permanent secretary to the full Senate for a vote.

Maryland entered phase 2A of its vaccine eligibility last week for all state residents 60 and over.
