Results from a U.S. trial of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine may have used "outdated information," U.S. federal health officials said early Tuesday March 23, 2021.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says the state is stepping up efforts to get people vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The governor said Wednesday that the “No Arm Left Behind” initiative will involve all state agencies and a variety of private companies.

Hogan says Maryland has administered more than 4 million vaccine doses. He says 82% of Maryland residents older than 65 have been vaccinated and more than 55% of people over 18 have been vaccinated.

The governor says demand for shots is still high but the state is having to get more creative in using its vaccine supply.
