On March 2nd, Governor Henry McMaster announced that South Carolina is officially moving into Phase 1b in the COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
Starting on March 8th, individuals aged 55 and over, people with high-risk medical conditions and front-line workers with increased risk are all eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
The front-line workers who are eligible to receive the vaccine in this next rollout include anyone who is in close contact with other individuals as a part of their job and who is at risk of exposure to COVID-19. These individuals include law enforcement officers, teachers and other school staff, grocery store workers, etc.
Find a vaccine provider and schedule your appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control.
It is expected that the state will move into Phase 1c of vaccine distribution on April 12th. In addition, officials hope to have the vaccine available for everyone who wishes to receive it by the summer of 2021.
