**COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Information**

Currently, all South Carolinians age 16 and older can get their COVID-19 vaccine.

South Carolina’s phased approach to its COVID-19 vaccine rollout was focused on saving lives, which is why those most at risk for severe illness and death were prioritized to receive vaccine first. With more and more vaccine becoming available and more and more people receiving their shots, South Carolina is now able to open vaccines to anyone 16 and older.
