Greetings during this snowy month. Below please find several updates which include vaccine distribution and registration, the RELIEF ACT which passed to help the economic disadvantaged and small businesses and a FREE tax preparation resource.
I continue to receive many complaints about the disjointed system for accessing the COVID vaccine. Last week I spent a great deal of time in hearings pressing the Maryland Department of Health for more assistance and coordination in assuring the most vulnerable in our County are receiving the vaccine in a timely and reasonable manner. We are starting to see small progress and hoping each week the coordination improves. I have requested that the Governor immediately spend the federal relief money he is still holding on vaccine administration for our County to address the disproportionate impact we have in COVID infection.
Please continue to do your part to help control the spread of COVID and wear a mask, avoid crowds, and sing a short song while you are washing your hands. We are starting to round the corner in conquering this virus.
I do my best work in Annapolis when I hear from you, so please keep sending me your comments, questions and concerns regarding the legislative session.
Delegate, Maryland House of Delegates, District 23A
