The COVID-19 Vaccine is one way we can build defenses against COVID-19 in our communities. McLeod Health is vaccinating based on national and state guidelines. We have created this resource page to help you learn more about the vaccine.
Important Vaccine Update: 1/19/21
Thank you for your understanding and patience. McLeod Health is offering COVID-19 Walk-in Clinic Vaccinations for first and second doses to McLeod Health employees and Phase 1A mission-critical first responders (as outlined by DHEC’s 1A criteria) at each of its hospitals this week.
South Carolinians 70 or older can also schedule their COVID-19 vaccine by calling the DHEC Care Line at 1-855-472-3432 or visiting scdhec.gov/vaxlocator to find a location near you.
We are working with all our teams to support this accelerated timeline to offer vaccines to those 70 and older as we continue to care for patients and protect our staff and the community.
At this time, we ask that you please do not call our hospitals or physicians’ offices to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. Appointments will become available for scheduling at the time we receive additional allocations.
