COLUMBIA, S.C. (WBTV) - South Carolina and other states in the region may see a delay in COVID-19 vaccine shipments in the coming days, thanks to severe weather, according to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

Severe weather has the potential to impact the FedEx facility in Memphis and the UPS facility in Lousiville that are vaccine shipping hubs for several southeastern states.

South Carolina will continue to receive its full weekly allotments of vaccine, according to SC DHEC. However, some providers may need to reschedule some appointments due to possible federal shipping delays.
