Hogan said the state will open its fourth COVID-19 mass vaccination site in Charles County next month.

It's slated to open no later than March 11 at Regency Furniture Stadium — a 4,200-seat ballpark used by a minor league baseball team.

Hogan said the site will be supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which will provide more than 100 personnel — including trained vaccinations — to help staff it.

To date, Maryland runs two mass vaccination sites: one at Six Flags America in Prince George's County and the other at the Baltimore Convention Center.

M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore — the state's third site — will begin administering vaccines on Thursday, Feb. 25. More than 10,000 appointments have already been made, Hogan said.

"Following both the federal and state vaccination plans, we continue to broaden the distribution network to ensure as many points of access as possible in every single county," he said. "We are utilizing every single dose we are allocated, and building an infrastructure with the capability of doing up to 100,000 shots per day, just as soon as they are made by the manufacturers and allocated to us by the federal government."
