Where to get free COVID-19 testing and vaccines Jan. 24-30

DHEC is providing safe, free vaccine clinics and testing sites at county health departments and select locations throughout the South Carolina Midlands

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has released its list of free COVID-19 vaccine clinics and testing sites throughout the Midlands for the week of January 24-30, 2022.

Most sites are at county health clinics and select sites in Aiken, Barnwell, Edgefield, Chester, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Lexington, Newberry, Saluda, Richland, and York counties. For the most up-to-date information about vaccine sites, go to scdhec.gov/vaxlocator; and for testing sites, go to scdhec.gov/findatest.

Vaccination Update 

DHEC supports the CDC's recommendation to use the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines over Janssen. The Janssen vaccine will still be offered for those who prefer it, but Moderna and Pfizer are showing to be more effective with less harmful side effects. 

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. They reduce people’s risk of getting severely ill from COVID-19. The Pfizer vaccine is now available for ages 5 and up.

  • Booster shots are now available and are encouraged. Learn more about who should get a booster and when.
  • A completed vaccination series is highly effective in preventing severe cases of COVID-19, and a booster shot with either brand will further stave off the virus and its variants, including Delta, Omicron and others

More vaccine information can be found on scdhec.gov/vaxfacts.

Community Partner Vaccine Clinics
Some non-DHEC vaccine providers may ask for your insurance information or an identification card, but you are not required to provide these in order to receive your vaccine and cannot be turned away. To make your appointment with a non-DHEC clinic, register online with the provider or call the provider directly.

Free COVID-19 Testing
DHEC-sponsored testing is free and pain-free (oral or nasal swab). Find a free DHEC testing location near you at: scdhec.gov/gettested. Information for non-DHEC testing opportunities from community partners is available here: scdhec.gov/covid19testing.

There continues to be a high rate of COVID-19 disease transmission in communities across our state. See CDC’s current recommendations for who should get tested for COVID-19.
