COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) – The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) on Wednesday announced that State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell has received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr. Bell said that she has “the utmost confidence in” the safety and the effectiveness of the vaccine, and encouraged others to get the vaccine when their times come.
