ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - The Rock Hill Piedmont Community Vaccination Clinic will move operations to the City of Rock Hill Operations Center, 757 S. Anderson Road, Rock Hill, SC 29730 effective Tuesday, May 18, 2021.

The last day shots will be administered at the Galleria Mall location is Friday, May 14.

The Rock Hill Piedmont Community Vaccination Clinic will utilize space in the Administration Building of the City Operations Center.

The clinic will operate Tuesdays through Fridays, with appointment times 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Volunteers will no longer be needed to sustain clinic operations after May 14.

“I can’t overstate the success of the Rock Hill Piedmont Community Vaccination Clinic. Our effort to create a space where hundreds of people could be vaccinated daily has been a model of community cooperation. There’s no way we could have managed to ramp up our numbers and staff this clinic for the last 12 weeks without our dedicated volunteers, assisted by City staff. We look forward to continuing vaccination efforts at the Operations Center site through the summer,” Mayor John Gettys commented.

First dose appointments at the Operations Center site will be available by logging into the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) during the week of May 3 for the following week.

To request a VAMS account, complete the Piedmont Medical Center vaccine request form (link at www.cityofrockhill.com/COVID19). Appointments for second doses will be made at the time the first shot is given.

People who need assistance creating an account and making an appointment can call 803-980-2684.

After May 14, live agents won’t be available to answer, so we ask callers to leave a message for their call to be returned within two clinic business days.
