(Viewer submitted)

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control will use its WIC Mobile Clinic to help those who can't get to local health departments due to recent flooding from Hurricane Florence.

Later this week the mobile care van will travel to the Cheraw and Marion areas to provide adult immunizations and nutrition services for eligible women and children.

DHEC wants to make it easy for people who are dealing with the aftermath of flooding to access its services," said Dr. Lilian Peake, Director of Public Health.

The mobile unit will be available these times and locations:

  • 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28 at Chesterfield County DSS (203 Commerce Dr., Cheraw)
  • 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at the CD Joyner Auditorium (161 Elizabeth St., Marion)
