As the coronavirus surges nationwide, Maryland’s health department reported 3,538 new COVID-19 cases Saturday — the second-highest total since the start of the pandemic. But a vaccine is expected to arrive in state hospitals by the end of the month.

The Food and Drug Administration approved Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine Friday. It’s set to make its way to 24 Maryland hospitals, according to NBC4

The initial batch is designated for high-risk groups, including healthcare workers, said Jinlene Chan, deputy secretary of the state health department, at a press conference with Gov. Larry Hogan last week.
