Singing River Health System waiting on second doses of vaccine
Vaccine rollout here on the Coast is taking a slight pause as supply distribution slows.
Singing River Health System is administering the remainder of their vaccines as they wait on shipments.
Tomorrow, Singing River is holding its last drive-thru vaccination distribution until further notice. There are currently no appointment openings.
If you have already received your first dose of the vaccine, you will get the second dose. Singing River Health is hoping to receive their second doses sometime this week.
At this time, Singing River’s vaccine hotline is not taking calls because their vaccination schedule is full. However, the health system plans to use the hotline for another purpose in the near future. Singing River Health System Media Relations Director Sarah Duffey said, “Right now, Singing River Health is preparing to open the hotline we had for the vaccine– the 809-5555 number– but not to schedule appointments. It’s going to be strictly to answer the community’s questions. At the moment, the whole system is trying to– if we have the man power– make that a reality. So, stay tuned and we should know more about when the hotline will be open again for all your COVID-19 vaccine questions.”
Duffey also says Singing River is anxious to get the next shipment of the first doses of the vaccines so they can keep the vaccination process moving.
