Individuals can also call the DHEC Care Line at (855) 472-3432 for assistance with scheduling an appointment beginning Wednesday. DHEC leaders told state senators on Tuesday that they are working with the state’s emergency management department to add additional hotline resources that are used during hurricanes so people aren’t put on hold for too long.

Health leaders have warned that while some people may be able to book an appointment, they may not be able to actually receive the vaccine for several weeks because healthcare providers are still vaccinating critical frontline healthcare workers, and there isn’t enough supplies of the vaccine.

According to DHEC, as the federal government is able to distribute more doses to S.C., more locations will begin to have doses available and be able to schedule more appointments for those 70 and older.
