McLeod Receives a Special Exemption to Move to Phase 1B for March 5th Event
McLeod Health in partnership with the Darlington Raceway has received a special exemption to move to Phase 1B for the March 5th mass vaccination clinic due to the availability of the vaccine. Appointments are available by calling 1-866-365-8110 or can be made online at https://vaxlocator.dhec.sc.gov/.
On Tuesday, March 2, 2021, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced that the state would move to Phase 1B for the COVID-19 vaccine distribution as of Monday, March 8th.
Phase 1B includes:
McLeod Health, in cooperation with Darlington Raceway and a large number of community partners, emergency management support, SCDHEC and city officials in Darlington, SC, is offering this drive through event which is beneficial for those with mobility issues as attendees will not be required to exit their vehicles to receive the vaccine. Carpooling is also encouraged as long as seating for car window access is available to make it easier to receive the vaccine.
Clinic attendees will enter the Racetrack at Gate 40 located on Hwy 151. The vaccine event will take patients through the infamous Racetrack “Tunnel” and onto the Racetrack Infield where they will receive their vaccine at the Racetrack Cup Garage.
McLeod Health has received a surplus of Moderna doses for this event. Moderna requires two doses spaced at least 28 days or four weeks apart. You must get both doses of the same brand of the vaccine. For those who receive their first dose at the Darlington Raceway event they will be able to return for their “final lap” second dose on Thursday, April 1.
“We are honored to partner with McLeod Health in this tremendous community health outreach event. Both our teams desire the same outcome – improved health and quality of life for all our people,” stated Kerry Tharp, President of Darlington Raceway.
