On Thursday, February 25, Charleston County and Fetter Health Care will be administering COVID-19 vaccines to citizens at the Baxter-Patrick James Island Library. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The library is located at 1858 South Grimball Road.
Citizens under Phase 1 A are eligible to receive a vaccine. That includes anyone 65 and older, health care workers, a parent of a medically fragile child, and critical essential workers defined by the South Carolina Department of Health. You can find phase 1a guidelines at scdhec.gov.
Vaccines are available on a first come, first serve basis. To fill out paperwork citizens need to bring a Personal Photo ID, an Employment photo ID (if applicable), an Insurance card, or social security number if you do not have insurance.
We do expect there to be extra traffic in the South Grimball Road area tomorrow. If you live near the library we ask for your patience as we work to vaccinate citizens. There will be crews directing traffic and guiding those getting vaccinate to available parking.
