Staying Connected Partners to Fight Covid-19

 

When Covid-19 vaccines became available, the challenge suddenly was “how do we get people scheduled?” In South Carolina, the solution was for residents to enroll via a website (VAMS) provided by the SC DHEC. The system was not user friendly and required that you have an active email account. In Sun City, many residents do not have technology in their home or if they do, don’t have technical skills to navigate a challenging website.

 

So on a Sunday, the Sun City Community Association reached out to Staying Connected to solicit our help by providing a call center to for residents to schedule appointments for assistance by Hilton Head Hospital staff and volunteers from the Community’s Computer Club. Within 26 hours, we had an operational call center up and running, staffed by volunteers ready to take resident calls.

 

Wonderful Staying Connected volunteers stepped up to answer hundreds of calls, and fill the appointment calendars until the DHEC provided a better system. Many thanks to our volunteers and to the Community Association for organizing a coalition with the Computer Club and Staying Connected to serve the needs of Sun City residents. It takes a Village!
