Tidelands Well being, Brookgreen Gardens presents a COVID-19 vaccine clinic and a free entry voucher for individuals who have been vaccinated
GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Tidelands Health and Brookgreen Gardens are an added incentive for people to get vaccinated.
The two teamed up for a special COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Wednesday, August 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. No entry is required for the vaccine, and anyone can just come by without an appointment and get the vaccination. It takes place at the Gardener’s Cottage Ticket and Information Center just behind the main gates of Highway 17.
Brookgreen Gardens also offers a voucher for free entry for vaccinated people. People can redeem the voucher on the day of their choice.
“Our friends at Brookgreen Gardens are kind enough to offer entry vouchers and a beautiful setting for those who stop by August 25 for the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine,” said Kelly Kaminski, Senior Director of Community Health Resources at Tidelands Health.
Page Kiniry, the president and CEO of Brookgreen Gardens, said this vaccine clinic was just part of a longstanding tradition that began with founders Anna and Archer Huntington.
“This vaccination clinic is part of our ongoing partnership with Tidelands Health to support community wellbeing. Our partnership is an extension of the work of Brookgreen founders Anna and Archer Huntington, who opened a free clinic on Brookgreen property 90 years ago when no other options were available. We hope the community members will take this opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine during this special clinic and enjoy a visit to our beautiful gardens, ”said Kiniry.
