Health department gives update on COVID-19 vaccine efforts

With multiple entities now administering COVID-19 vaccines, the Beaufort County Health Department is encouraging people to choose the location that works best for them. People who schedule vaccine appointments with other entities need to cancel any preexisting vaccine appointments they have with the health department.

“It is important to cancel your appointment as soon as you know you will not be able to keep it,” a health department press release reads. “This allows us to offer that vaccine to someone else. “

Those who have scheduled vaccine appointments through the health department should arrive at their designated vaccine location no more than 15 minutes prior to the appointment, the health department says.
