South Carolina health officials say they’re on standby and ready to rollout their first shipments of COVID-19 vaccines once approved by the FDA. According to most experts, that approval is expected to come this week, and will most likely be for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which has begun shipment to multiple states across the country.

When that happens, South Carolina has five undisclosed locations where they still store vaccines until they’re distributed to medical providers. The first batch of vaccines, which will be limited, will be sent to hospitals and reserved for health care workers on the front lines before it becomes available to the general public in 2021. The state is also partnering with mainstream pharmacies, like Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS to help distribute the vaccine in rural areas. #WakeUpCLT #COVID19 #Coronavirus
