Maryland governor says he got booster shot of COVID-19 vaccine
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) said on Sunday that he has gotten his booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
During an appearance on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” Hogan told guest host Major Garrett that as a cancer survivor, he fell into the category of people with compromised immune systems.
“Matter of fact, I did just this week, you know, strong advice of our – of our team of epidemiologists and my own oncologist. You know, the federal government said that people have immune- that are immune compromised, should get it,” Hogan told Garrett. “I had a cancer of the immune system, so I got it on Monday. I’m feeling great.”

Hogan encouraged all Marylanders to get their booster shots when they become available.
The Biden administration last week said it would recommend booster shoots for most Americans about 8 months after they’ve been considered fully vaccinated, expanding the pool of people eligible for such shots beyond those with compromised immune systems.
