SCH’s Drive-Through Vaccine Clinic inoculates over 500 Stephens County residents

Stephens County Hospital administered over 500 COVID vaccines on Wednesday, during its drive-through vaccination clinic.

According to Stephens County Hospital Chief Executive Officer Mike Hester, there were 524 individuals to come through for the vaccine.

He says the clinic was a huge success.

As WNEG News reported on Thursday, those who received the vaccine on Wednesday, January 13, will need to return to the hospital on Wednesday, February 3, to receive their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

During Wednesday’s Drive-Through Vaccination Clinic, individuals falling into Phase 1a, which included Stephens County residents age 65 and older, as well as their at-home caregivers, Toccoa-Stephens County First Responders, including law enforcement, Fire, and 911 dispatchers; and Toccoa-Stephens County Healthcare workers, were able to get the vaccine at no cost.

Again, anyone who received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine will need to return to the hospital on February 3 for their second dose of the vaccine.
