HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Tidelands Health is setting up mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics at businesses, churches, community events and more to make it easier for residents to receive the vaccine.

According to a press release, the health system already has taken vaccination clinics on the road to administer shots to the public at Georgetown County high schools and, most recently, at the Carolina Country Music Fest in Myrtle Beach.

Tidelands Health officials said churches and community groups in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties can request the health care system bring a vaccination clinic to their location.
