Columbia, South Carolina (WBTW / WCBD) – On Wednesday, the Department of Health and Environment (DHEC) announced that state epidemiologist Dr. Lindabel had received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Bell said she was “extremely confident” in the safety and efficacy of the vaccine and advised others to vaccinate when their time came.
But Dr. Bell said, “Until we all have enough vaccines and enough people are vaccinated, we must continue to do what we know the job. Includes wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, avoiding large gatherings, and washing hands frequently. “
DHEC continues to seek partnerships with independent medical institutions, pharmacies, DHEC locations, and other sites, enabling people included in Phase 1a to take shots.
