The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and Governor Henry McMaster have announced that South Carolina residents who are 65 and older can begin making appointments to get a COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, February 8, 2021.
To receive a vaccination at Lexington Medical Center, eligible individuals should go to LexMed.com/vaccine and click on “Request Form” to register for the vaccine by providing information including their name, date of birth and email address. The hospital suggests doing that as soon as possible, beginning today. Lexington Medical Center will upload the email addresses to the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) on Monday. Then, individuals will receive an email from VAMS allowing them to complete their registration and schedule a date and time for a vaccine appointment.
Upon arriving for a vaccine appointment, individuals will need to present credentials verifying they qualify for the vaccine such as a driver’s license or identification card.
Lexington Medical Center has also set up a call center for questions at (803) 739 – 3363 Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
South Carolina receives vaccines weekly. Appointments are subject to cancellation based on vaccines received from the federal government.
