Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the United States’ strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths and to help put an end to the pandemic.
Under Phase 1a of South Carolina’s vaccination plan, the state has currently authorized distribution of the vaccine to health care workers, individuals ages 70 and older, certain hospitalized patients, staff of nursing homes and long-term care facilities and state and local government employees essential to COVID-19 vaccination and testing operations.
For more information about who is included in each phase of the state's vaccination plan and the timelines for each phase, please click here.
