With the contagiousness of the Omicron variant, CareSouth Carolina is joining with the CDC and strongly encouraging you to get your COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot if you haven’t done so already.
CareSouth Carolina is now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 booster shot for ages 12 & up. For those ages 12 and up, the booster can be given six months after being fully vaccinated. Children ages 5-11 are not currently approved to receive a booster shot.
To schedule your child for a vaccine or a booster shot, please contact the CareSouth Carolina Hartsville Pediatrics, Bishopville, Bennettsville Pediatrics or Latta Center to make an appointment.
Before recommending COVID-19 vaccination for children, scientists conducted clinical trials with thousands of children and no serious safety concerns were identified. The FDA gave the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine emergency authorization to use in children ages 5-15 years old and full approval to use in people ages 16 years and older.
Pfizer vaccine for ages 5-17
The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only vaccine approved for those ages 5-17. We currently offer the vaccine at five of our medical offices.
To schedule your child for a vaccine or a booster shot, please contact the CareSouth Carolina Hartsville Pediatrics, Bishopville Pediatrics, Bennettsville Pediatrics or Latta Center to make an appointment.
For the latest updates and availability, please visit caresouth-carolina.com or give one of our offices a call.
Vaccines and Boosters for Ages 18 and older
CareSouth Carolina is administering the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots at our office locations. The MOBY units are also providing COVID-19 vaccines and Flu shots at community locations. The schedule for these vaccine clinics can be found in the calendar section of our website. Walk-ins are welcome and you DO NOT need an appointment.
Individuals who received the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine can get a booster vaccine six months after being fully vaccinated. Individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can get a booster two months after receiving the shot.
