COVID-19 vaccinations began this week for residents at the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center. The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office and Wellpath, the facility’s contracted medical provider, had been working with DHEC and the CDC to obtain access to vaccines.
The detention center received 500 initial doses of the Moderna vaccine, with more to come.
“Today was one of the best days in my nursing career,” Wellpath nurse KellyAnne Lee said. “I felt honored to be a nurse to give the vaccine.”
Vaccinations for the residents are voluntary. The Sheriff’s Office is expecting additional doses for secondary vaccinations in the future, but residents have been instructed on how to get a free second dose in the community if they are released before receiving it.
“We recognize the importance of providing vaccinations to our detention center’s residents, many of whom may not normally have access to this opportunity,” Sheriff Kristin Graziano said. “This will, in turn, reduce the number of COVID cases in our community.”
