DHEC is expanding its Vaccination Homebound Project to all 46 counties. The statewide program launched Monday, June 1 and will run through December 2021. To schedule an appointment with the Vaccination Homebound Project, call DHEC’s Vaccine Information Line at 866-365-8110 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. Residents will provide their name, date of birth, and address to a call line operator. The operator will connect them with either Welcome Pharmacy or H&M Labs and a representative from the provider will then call the resident within a few days to schedule an appointment. If residents have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, a call line operator can help answer them. After administering the shot, the vaccine administrator will stay for a short monitoring period for all individuals who receive the vaccine. The vaccine administrator will assist those receiving the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine with scheduling their second shot. Additional home care providers in the state who would like to partner with DHEC to expand this service can contact DHEC at COVIDProviderenrollment@dhec.sc.gov.
