COVID-19 Vaccine Awareness

 

HELP US MOVE CLOSER TO ENDING THE PANEMIC

 

 

We want everyone in our community to be safe and get back the moments we’ve missed with our families, friends, and neighbors. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective in preventing severe illness from COVID-19, and people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may start to do some things they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection for you, your family, and your loved ones. Here are some key points about the COVID-19 vaccine:

  • All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are very effective at preventing the disease.
  • The most common side effects are pain in the arm where you got the shot, feeling tired, headache, body aches, chills, and fever.
  • Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available—wearing masks, staying at least 6 feet apart from people who don’t live with you, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, washing your hands frequently, and getting vaccinated.

We all play a part in this effort, and you are key. Use the SC DHEC Vaccine Locator tool to find a location near you to get your COVID-19 vaccination. 

For answers to common questions and myths regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit the CDC or SC DHEC website.
