MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Rep. Tom Rice, R-Myrtle Beach, will hold a phone town hall Monday night to discuss legislative updates and answer questions.
He also will talk with DHEC Interim Director Brannon Traxler to answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.
The town hall will be held at 5:30 p.m. Anyone wanting to join can register online here or dial 866-295-1745 on Monday.
This comes after South Carolina state senators Stephen Goldfinch and Nikki Setzler sent a letter to Gov. Henry McMaster asking for former Adjutant General Bob Livingston to be made head of COVID-19 vaccine logistics.
McMaster blames the hospitals, threatening to use his executive powers to force them to give more vaccines. He says most have administered just two-thirds or less of their doses.
But hospitals are saying they do not have enough vaccines to make all the appointments and they are getting significantly less than they requested.
