Marijuana workers in Maryland will be put at the top of the list, along with health-care service providers, for getting the state’s very first wave of COVID-19 vaccinations.
That status even more validates the “important” classification that marijuana services and their employees gotten when the coronavirus pandemic started.
According to the Baltimore Service Journal, the Maryland Medical Marijuana Commission notified the more than 130 certified marijuana business throughout all sectors that their workers will be qualified for Stage 1A of the state’s tiered vaccine circulation strategy.
The state health department provided regulations specifying that signed up workers at medical marijuana dispensaries, laboratories, growing websites and processing websites are “signed up healthcare service providers.”
An agent of SunMed Growers informed the Baltimore Service Journal that workers at the Cecil County-based business have actually started registering for the vaccine, with some set to get their very first dosage by week’s end.
