Fetter Health Care Network (Fetter) announced it will begin hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics to distribute the vaccine in accordance with SC DHEC guidelines, beginning with Phase 1 distribution on Wednesday, Jan. 20. According to SC DHEC, Phase 1 includes distribution of the vaccine to health care workers, persons age 70 or older, mission-critical government employees, and long-term care facility residents and staff.
The first clinic will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist (7396 Rivers Ave., North Charleston, SC 29406). Fetter plans to distribute 500 vaccines on a first-come, first-serve basis at the clinic site. Vaccinations will only be provided to persons who meet the Phase 1 criteria, as designated by SC DHEC.
Persons who qualify to receive the vaccine during Phase 1 and who are interested in receiving the vaccine should arrive at the clinic and will be asked to complete on-site registration. Those arriving for vaccination should bring personal identification in order to verify they are 70 years of age or older, or proof of employment.
