- Care Services
For the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff, CareSouth Carolina will NO longer be permitting family members or friends to accompany patients into the medical office. Only those who are seeing a provider, seeking medical care or picking up a prescription are permitted. A guardian/caregiver of a patient is still permitted.
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.
