Hospitalizations increased by 26 to 767. Of those hospitalized, 579 adults are in acute care and 180 are in intensive care. Five children are in acute care and three are in intensive care.

The new data comes days after Maryland announced it has surpassed 1 million COVID-19 booster shots, which represents a significant milestone for the state’s vaccination effort.

Since the pandemic began, there have been 590,813 total confirmed cases and 11,007 deaths.

There are 4,118,630 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 9,472,600 doses. Of those, 4,304,197 are first doses, with 7,579 administered in the past 24 hours. Officials have given out 3,797,484 second doses, 9,484 of them in the last day.

A total of 321,146 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 492 over the last day.

In November, Gov. Hogan announced that 99.9% of Maryland seniors have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. He also said last month more than 50,000 children ages 5 to 11 have received a vaccination shot.

The governor said Monday that he does not anticipate spread of the new Omicron variant leading to any lockdowns in Maryland, but he encouraged residents to socially distance, wear masks in public and get vaccinated.

“Obviously you’re much better off being fully immunized. If you haven’t gotten your booster, you’re at greater risk,” he said.

In late September, after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved Pfizer’s booster, Hogan authorized the booster shot for Marylanders who received their second Pfizer at least six months ago.

To date, the state has administered 1,049,773 additional or booster vaccine doses, 27,136 in the last day.

The state reported 89,1% of all adults in Maryland have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
