ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Nine nursing homes or congregate living facilities have 100% fully vaccinated taffers, while nearly 100 other facilities across the state have reached a rate of 91% or better, according weekly data released by the Maryland Department of Health on Monday.

“More than 88 percent of Maryland nursing home staff have received at least one dose of a life-saving COVID-19 vaccine,” said MDH Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “By getting vaccinated, they have taken the most important step they can during this pandemic to protect both themselves and our elderly loved ones they care for every day.”

On the opposite end of the spectrum, 10 facilities reported 71% of their caretakers or fewer have gotten at least one shot. The worst rate is Autumn Lake Healthcare at Chesapeake Woods at 49%.

Eight facilities did not submit sufficient data, the health department said.

The update comes after the state health department instituted new guidelines requiring caretakers and staff at nursing homes and congregate living facilities to get their first shot by Sept. 1. Those who don’t will face regular testing and health screenings.

“The handful of nursing facilities in the state that still have significant numbers of staff who are unvaccinated against COVID-19 are risking the health of staff and residents who are vaccinated,” said Maryland Department of Aging Secretary Rona E. Kramer. “We will continue to impose penalties on them until they comply.”
