Children's COVID-19 Vaccination

Kids vaccine

Children ages 5 and older are now eligible to benefit from the lifesaving protection offered by the COVID-19 vaccine.

At Tidelands Health, our region’s leader in COVID-19 vaccination, it’s easy for eligible children to be vaccinated.

In alignment with federal guidelines, we are administering a smaller, child-sized dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to children ages 5-11 and the standard vaccination dose to individuals 12 and older.

As part of our Safe in Our Care initiative, we have established separate, color-coded processes for the two age groups at all of our vaccination locations and events, and our vaccination professionals have received specialized training to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to both children and adults.

Special vaccination events for families

Tidelands Health will be holding special, after-hours vaccination events where eligible children and adults can receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, including the third dose and booster dose for eligible individuals.

No appointment is needed, and there’s no out-of-pocket cost to be vaccinated.

Each of the following events will be held at Tidelands Health Medical Park at Holmestown Road, 4320 Holmestown Road in Myrtle Beach:

  • Thursday, Dec. 2, 4:30-6 p.m.
  • Thursday, Dec. 9, 4:30-6 p.m.

Regional vaccination sites

Individuals 5 and older can receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at our regional vaccination sites. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is already available for individuals ages 12 and older at these sites. For dates, times and locations, please click here.

Physician offices

We are now administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5-11 at all Tidelands Health Family Medicine offices with a regularly scheduled appointment.

Before your vaccination: Review the vaccine fact sheet

Tidelands Health is administering the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. The FDA requires that everyone who receives a COVID-19 vaccine receive and review a fact sheet, which contains important information about the vaccine, possible side effects and contraindications.
