The Low Country Will Soon Start First Round of VaccinationHealth authorities and the general public are getting ready for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. An article by WSAV News 3 titled "Lowcountry Medical Providers Preparing to Administer COVID-19 Vaccine" recounts the preparations started in the Lowcountry after the vaccine's arrival to South Carolina.

The first batch of vaccines contains 43,000 doses that will go to 56 sites all around the state, but there's no official report about the exact number of vaccines destined to the Lowcountry area. The Beaufort Memorial, the Hilton Head Regional, and the Coastal Carolina Hospital are among the health facilities that will take part in the region's first round of distribution.

Medical workers, first responders, and residents of long-term care facilities will top the list of people getting the vaccine's initial dose. From what we know of the vaccine, it must be administered in two separate shots and kept in ultracold temperatures.

Health officials seem to agree that it's too soon to predict when the vaccine will be made available to the general public, given that distribution is only at Phase 1 and there are still factors that call for further evaluation. As of now, the COVID-19 vaccine is expected to reach the public between Spring and Early Summer.
