COVID-19 Vaccinations

Conway Medical Center was the first hospital in South Carolina to begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine.  We will continue to lead the way in vaccinating and safeguarding our community.


Pediatric Vaccines for ages 5-11

The vaccine will be available for 5 to 11 year olds in our pediatric offices beginning Monday, November 8, 2021. Appointments are required and can be made through the CMC Care App or by calling (843) 347-8000. To find the pediatrics location nearest you, CLICK HERE.


Booster Shots

Booster shots are now available at our vaccine clinic in Socastee.  

Who is eligible for the booster shot?

The CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive a third dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines at least 28 days after a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.

This includes people who have:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
