Beginning Monday, November 8, CareSouth Carolina will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine to ages 5-11 at select offices.
CareSouth Carolina was already previously administering the COVID-19 vaccine to ages 12 & up. Now, if parents want to schedule an appointment for their child ages 5-17 to be vaccinated, they will be able to do so at CareSouth Carolina’s Bennettsville Pediatric Center, Hartsville Pediatric Center, Bishopville Center or Latta Center.
Currently, the Pfizer-BioNTech is the only vaccine authorized for ages 5-17. The vaccine is available at no cost and you do not have to be a patient of CareSouth Carolina to schedule an appointment. Children ages 15 and under need a parental consent.
