Residents 65 or older can now get COVID-19 vaccinations

Gov. Henry McMaster and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) have announced that beginning Monday, Feb. 8, any South Carolina resident 65 or older, regardless of health status or preexisting conditions, can begin scheduling their appointment to receive COVID-19 vaccine. DHEC’s online tool at shows locations currently accepting appointments for COVID-19 vaccine and provides contact information for scheduling appointments at those locations. With increased vaccine allocations from the federal government and a streamlined, statewide vaccination plan, it is now appropriate to expand the number of South Carolinians eligible to receive vaccine. However, supply of the vaccine remains limited for the time being.
