COVID-19 Booster Shots
COVID-19 Boosters for ages 18 and up
A COVID-19 booster for ages 18 and up is recommended for those who received the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna, and for individuals who took the single-dose Janssen during their initial vaccine series. Check to see if your primary care provider is offering booster shots or visit DHEC’s vaccine locator for availability.

Living in South Carolina means that everyone needs to understand and be prepared for hurricanes. We can't prevent hurricanes, but we can take action to protect ourselves and our families from these storms' dangers.
