[ARCHIVED] Mayor Murray, other Beaufort County officials send letter to DHEC about vaccine distribution

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Jan. 28, 2021) – Beaufort Mayor Stephen Murray joined with other local elected officials to send a letter to Mark Elam, chairman of the board of South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control, to ask for more information about the methodology for distributing Covid-19 vaccines throughout the state. 

“Please know that our local medical community, in partnership with our local governments and other stakeholders are prepared to vaccinate our residents as quickly and safely as possible,” the letter stated.

“We stand ready to take on this herculean task but request your assistance in ensuring that we are receiving the appropriate number of doses from the Federal Government, and that SCDHEC is distributing them in a timely and equitable way,” the letter continued.

The letter was signed by Joe Passiment, chairman of Beaufort County Council; Mayor Lisa Sulka of the Town of Bluffton; Mayor John McCann of the Town of Hilton Head; Mayor Joe DeVito of the Town of Port Royal; Mayor Harry Williams of the City of Hardeeville; and Mayor Colin Moore of the Town of Yemassee.
