MURRELLS INLET — Tidelands Health is trying to streamline appointment bookings for COVID-19 vaccines with a new scheduling process that launched this week.
Eligible individuals can schedule an appointment at tidelandshealth.org/vaccine/ or by calling 1-88-567-3144. The health care provider said people are no longer placed on a wait list.
This new scheduling tool was rolled out as the state moved into Phase 1B of coronavirus vaccine distributions on March 8.
A news release said an estimated 220,000 people along the Grand Strand are eligible to receive a vaccine in Phase 1B.
Tidelands Health has administered nearly 36,000 doses of vaccines to-date in Horry and Georgetown counties.
Gayle Resetar, COO at Tidelands Health, said the of number of people who have been vaccinated is encouraging.
“We’re proud of this great start, but we know there are many, many more people in our region who are awaiting a vaccine,” Resetar said. “We won’t let up until everyone who wants a vaccine has received it.”
