Gov. Henry McMaster and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) announced Wednesday that beginning Monday, Feb. 8, any South Carolina resident aged 65 or older, regardless of health status or preexisting conditions, can begin scheduling their appointment to receive COVID-19 vaccine.  
Residents will be asked to provide a driver’s license or other form of ID at their appointment that confirms their age and, therefore, their eligibility to receive vaccine.
South Carolinians eligible to receive vaccine can schedule an appointment at a location accepting COVID-19 vaccine appointments. The scdhec.gov/vaxlocator can be used to find those locations and get contact information for scheduling appointments at those locations. People can also call DHEC’s COVID-19 Vaccine Information Line at 1-866-365-8110 for help finding vaccine providers and their contact information to schedule an appointment.

Marlboro County
County officials said Scotland Health has received permission to receive and administer vaccines in the county.  DHEC will allocate doses for Scotland Health this week with recurring allocations in coming weeks.

McLeod Health Cheraw will hold a Covid-19 Vaccine Clinic for the 1A Category (includes 70+ individuals) from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Friday at Fisher Hill Baptist Community Church, 3282 W. Market Street in Cheraw.
