COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATIONFollowing Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, vaccination efforts are underway at Hampton Regional Medical Center. We are working closely with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other local and state agencies to ensure our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plans are equitable and safe.
With supplies of the COVID-19 vaccine limited, South Carolina has developed a phased COVID-19 Vaccination Plan that establishes how the vaccine will be distributed. Currently, the state is in Phase IA of its vaccination plan. For detailed information regarding who is included in each phase of the state's vaccination plan, please visit the SC DHEC's website here.
Hampton Regional continues to vaccinate individuals in Phase 1A, including healthcare workers and first responders. On January 13, 2021, Phase 1A eligibility expanded to include adults aged 70 years and older, regardless of health status or preexisting conditions. If you qualify to receive the vaccine under Phase 1A, please submit a vaccine request to email@example.com.
Please do not contact the hospital or Coastal Plains physician offices by phone to schedule an appointment. NOTE: You must schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine. No walk-ins are allowed.
Please be patient as we are experiencing a high volume of calls and emails and are responding to vaccine requests as quickly as possible.
This page will be updated regularly as vaccine distribution plans change. In addition, up-to-date information regarding the vaccine is provided through the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
