BALTIMORE, MD (Friday, Feb. 26, 2021) – Baltimore City Council President Nick J. Mosby issued the following statement in response to Gov. Larry Hogan's comments about vaccination distribution.


“Equity has nothing to do with entitlement,” City Council President Nick J. Mosby said. “Baltimore City is not looking for special treatment, as the governor implied with his poor choice of words. It is incumbent on our state leadership to recognize the inherent need to distribute this life-saving vaccine to the people who are most likely to die. This is not about entitlement. This is about life and death.


 “We must look at the data to know who is at the most risk — and that should be all the information the governor needs to decide where to send these doses. Data is the king of everything, particularly in a crisis when you are trying to solve a problem as consequential as an infectious disease that is killing Black and brown people at disproportionate rates. We can do better and it is not too late to change course.”
