Baltimore City leaders are reacting with consternation to an offhand comment from Gov. Larry Hogan.

During remarks outside the just-opened mass-vaccination center at M&T Bank Stadium, Hogan said the city had gotten "far more (doses allocated) than they are really entitled to."

Mayor Brandon Scott has been asking state officials to reserve for city residents a portion of the doses to be administered at M&T Bank Stadium.

"Baltimoreans are Marylanders too. They are both entitled to and deserve the vaccine. However, city residents do not have equitable access to vaccine doses," Scott said in a statement Friday. "The state has not provided an equitable share to Baltimore City, but has required local health departments to utilize a broken, online-only sign up model that has forced our Health Department to develop workarounds. The state has ignored the barriers to access for communities too often left behind when we talk about health care in America."

Scott said Hogan has failed to set up an equitable model for statewide vaccine registration and has not allocated the city an equitable supply of doses.
