Baltimore County Health Director Dr. Gregory Branch said they’re vaccinating 500 to 700 people per-hour at the Timonium Fairgrounds, but could do more.

“Here in Baltimore County, at one site, I can move at this site, if I had to, to 1,000 vaccines per hour,” Dr. Branch said.

He also said the county’s ability to move to Phase 1c is going to depend on the supply of vaccine doses that they receive.

“If I’m getting 5,000 doses a week, it’s going to take me a long time,” Dr. Branch said.
