After a bumpy vaccine rollout in South Carolina, major progress is being made in Rock Hill.
Governor Henry McMaster toured a mass vaccination clinic that started at the Galleria Mall on Friday. It’s open by appointment from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Once the supply increases, the location will be capable of doing 1,000 vaccinations per day, according to Piedmont Medical Center which is running the clinic.
WCNC Charlotte talked to someone who thought they’d have to wait until March to be vaccinated, so it was a welcome surprise. Governor McMaster called the clinic ‘a model’ for the state.
“We’re making a lot of progress; it was bumpy at first,” said Governor McMaster.
After touring the new mass vaccination clinic, Governor McMaster acknowledged there was initially confusion around the state; specifically whether providers should hold onto second doses or use them immediately.
