COLUMBIA, S.C. (WBTW) — Gov. Henry McMaster is asking hospitals to reduce the number of elective surgeries to help speed up the vaccine process.
McMaster said with more staff dedicated to vaccine efforts, it can speed up the process.
“I ask that the South Carolina Hospital Association convey to member hospitals my request for a voluntary reduction in elective and non-essential procedures,” McMaster said.
