This weekend, the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center administered its 57,000th COVID-19 vaccine dose. The health care system began immunizations in December 2020 and has been utilizing available COVID-19 vaccinations to quickly get vaccinations to Veterans along the South Carolina and Georgia coast.
“Since the start of the pandemic, we have been focused on vaccinating as many Veterans as possible,” said Ralph H. Johnson VAMC Director and CEO Scott Isaacks. “Our vaccination clinics have been running smoothly and we’ve gotten some great feedback from our Veterans. As a health care system, we play a critical role in this public health crisis, and our team is committed to continuing to deliver vaccines to our community.”
The Ralph H. Johnson VAMC has numerous appointments available and is providing Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations to anyone who served in the military, their caregivers, spouses, and some other beneficiaries under the authority granted by the SAVE LIVES Act, signed by President Joe Biden on March 24, 2021.
The expanded authority depends on readily available COVID-19 vaccine supplies and requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to continue to prioritize Veterans enrolled in VA care.
To maintain continued health and safety during the pandemic, please do not visit a VA facility for a COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment. To schedule a COVID-19 vaccination, please call 843-789-6900.
Veterans can also check www.charletson.va.gov for regular updates on COVID-19 vaccine distribution, including clinic dates and locations at the Charleston VAMC and community clinics. For more information on VA’s COVID-19 vaccine efforts, read the national news release and the VAntage Point Blog
