The chain announced Thursday that its online reservation system will open at 7 a.m. Friday for appointments across the state from Monday, Feb. 22 through Friday, Feb. 26.

Those eligible under Phase 1a of South Carolina’s vaccine distribution plan can make an appointment.

The following locations in both Horry and Georgetown county are available to take vaccine appointments, according to Publix:
