Doc makes good on her promise

South Carolina State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine yesterday morning – keeping her word that when it was her turn, she’d ‘gladly’ do her part by rolling up her sleeve and get vaccinated.

Her hope is that others will follow suit in an act of unity against the disease and quickly schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine once it’s their turn.

“We the have the opportunity to stop the ongoing devastation that COVID-19 has wreaked on our community,” said State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell. “It is all of our responsibility to do everything we can to protect ourselves and those we love from this deadly disease. By sharing with others that I am receiving the vaccine today, I hope that more South Carolinians will continue to step up and do their part by getting vaccinated.”
