Under phase 1a of the state’s plan, Tidelands Health has already administered more than 2,400 doses of vaccine to the health system’s workforce and community-based phase 1A workers such as first responders, home health workers, school nurses and more.
In addition, the health system is also accepting requests for vaccination appointments from individuals 70 and older. To request an appointment, please click here.
Vaccinations among people ages 70 and older will take place at centrally located vaccination clinics; so please do not call the health system’s hospitals or physician offices to request a COVID-19 vaccination. The only way to request an appointment and receive the vaccine is to complete this online request form.
“At Tidelands Health, our goal is to safely administer the vaccine to as many people as possible as quickly as possible,” Resetar says. “However, it’s important to note that the pace at which we can establish appointments and vaccinate people is dependent upon vaccine supply, which remains limited.
“With more than 70,000 people ages 70-plus in our region, we’re asking for our community’s patience and understanding as we undertake this major public health initiative.”
