ATLANTA - The last day for individuals to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at the Community Vaccination Center at the Columbia Place Mall is June 10.

The center, operated by the State of South Carolina and supported by FEMA, is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. Individuals can simply drive in or walk up without an appointment to receive a vaccination.

“We appreciate the work of everyone who helped this center provide vaccinations to so many people,” said Gracia Szczech, FEMA Region IV Administrator. “The center was established in a location accessible to socially vulnerable populations and it was successful in its mission. Now, FEMA will continue to support the State of South Carolina and local communities with resources as they reach deeper into communities.”

Vaccines are now widely available at pharmacies, healthcare facilities and other locations accessible to the public. In most cases, an appointment is not necessary.
