Darlington Raceway to host a mass COVID-19 Vaccination event


The Darlington Raceway and McLeod Health have partnered to do a mass vaccination event, beginning March 5th, at the Darlington Raceway.

According to a release, from McLeod Health:
“Your Checkered Flag to Better Health” Vaccination Clinic will take place on Friday, March 5, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., at the Darlington Raceway 1301 Harry Byrd Hwy, Darlington, SC 29532 for all persons who meet Phase 1A criteria. There will be 5,000 doses available at the event.
Clinic attendees will enter the Racetrack at Gate 40 located on Hwy 151. The vaccine event will take patients through the infamous Racetrack “Tunnel” and onto the Racetrack Infield where they will receive their vaccine at the Racetrack Cup Garage.
This event requires appointments to be made in advance, and appointments can be made online at https://vaxlocator.dhec.sc.gov/ or by calling 1-866-365-8110. Please bring your ID or driver’s license to verify your age and 1A status at each event.
McLeod Health has received a surplus of Moderna doses for this event. Moderna requires two doses spaced at least 28 days or four weeks apart. You must get both doses of the same brand of the vaccine. For those who receive their first dose at the Darlington Raceway event they will be able to return for their “final lap” second dose on Thursday, April 1.
“We are honored to partner with McLeod Health in this tremendous community health outreach event. Both our teams desire the same outcome – improved health and quality of life for all our people,” stated Kerry Tharp, President of Darlington Raceway.
