CareSouth Carolina is now administering the Fall COVID-19 Vaccine at its medical offices and pediatric offices.
The vaccine is only available to CareSouth Carolina patients and is offered free of charge. Pediatric patients need to make appointments at the pediatric offices, while adult patients can receive their booster at other CareSouth Carolina offices by either walking in or scheduling an appointment.
For additional information about CareSouth Carolina's Fall COVID Booster Vaccination Program, please call your local office or the CareSouth Carolina Call Center at 843-309-8301.
Even after getting your two doses of COVID-19 vaccine, you should continue to take actions to help protect those around you until the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more widely available to all.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, clean your hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
Stay a safe distance- at least six feet apart- from others not in your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces and avoid crowds when possible. Six feet apart is about two arms’ length.
Wear a face mask or cloth face covering that covers your nose and mouth in public spaces even if you don’t feel sick. Face masks and cloth face coverings can help protect others and prevent both asymptomatic and symptomatic spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19.
Not enough information is currently available to say if or when the CDC will stop recommending that people wear masks and avoid close contact with others to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Experts need to understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide in real-world conditions before making that decision. Other factors, including how many people get vaccinated and how the virus is spreading in communities, will also affect this decision. We also don’t yet know whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent you from spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 to other people, even if you don’t get sick yourself.
Pandemic fatigue is real, but we all must continue to work together to make our communities healthier and fight COVID-19.
