Update on Top 10 and Bottom 10 Skilled Nursing Home Facilities in Maryland Ranked by Staff Vaccination Rates


Baltimore, MD– The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) today announced an update on the top 10 and bottom 10 nursing home facilities in the state ranked by percentage of staff with at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19 and highly contagious variants. MDH also announced 18 nursing home facilities that did not submit adequate staff COVID-19 vaccination data as required by the state.

On May 4, 2021, the Maryland Department of Aging launched the Skilled Nursing Facilities Vaccination Dashboard, which weekly publishes data on residents and staff vaccinated against COVID-19 at each of the skilled nursing homes and congregate care facilities in the state. 

“Protecting our elderly loved ones from COVID-19 remains a top priority and MDH commends the state’s nursing home facilities that have the highest percentage of vaccinated staff,” said MDH Secretary Dennis R. Schrader. “It is disheartening that a large number of staff at other nursing facilities, however, are still unvaccinated. This continues to put staff, residents, and the lives of others at risk at this critical stage of the pandemic.”
