COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – Over 100 independent pharmacies in South Carolina will soon receive the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control announced on Wednesday how it was going to distribute the new vaccine across the state.

South Carolina will receive 41,000 doses of the vaccine next week. It’s not clear right now if that’s how much the state will get every week.

State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell said DHEC is activating independent pharmacies that will receive the J&J vaccine because they are more likely to serve rural counties. The J&J vaccine also doesn’t have strict storage and handling requirements like Pfizer and Moderna, so it will be easier for smaller pharmacies to handle the vaccine.

WMBF News reached out to DHEC and asked which pharmacies were going to provide the J&J vaccine, and we were sent a list of 125 independent pharmacies. DHEC confirmed that all of the pharmacies on the list have been activated as vaccine providers.

***It’s important to note that the J&J vaccines will be sent to South Carolina next week, and some pharmacies may not be accepting appointments just yet. Some of the pharmacies have started waiting lists for those interested in receiving the vaccine.***

DHEC stated that J&J allocations will be limited for several weeks and that providers need to limit their appointments in order to avoid cancellations.
