“The number of positive COVID-19 cases here in South Carolina has begun to skyrocket, affecting children just as they return to the classrooms,” said Samuel L. Green Sr., presiding bishop of the Seventh Episcopal District of the AME Church. “As an entity committed to both the spiritual and physical well-being of those in our state, we will do our part by offering a series of free vaccination sites over the course of several weeks in each part of the state.”

The vaccination sites will offer all three COVID-19 vaccinations: Moderna, Pfizer and J&J/Janssen.

The vaccination sites place an emphasis on vaccinating youth ages 12 and up and offering booster shots to vulnerable adults who have already been vaccinated.

No prior registration or doctor’s referral is required to attend the vaccination site.
