Tidelands health visitation guidelines have changed
In response to increasing COVID-19 spread in the region, Tidelands Health has adjusted its hospital visitation guidelines. We are implementing additional restrictions to help limit any potential spread of COVID-19 as cases and hospitalizations in the region increase dramatically, fueled by the Delta variant.
At Tidelands Health, we’re proud to be our region’s leader in COVID-19 vaccination, administering thousands of first and second doses of the lifesaving vaccine at our regional vaccination sites in Georgetown and Horry counties. It’s never been easier to take your shot. Walk in at one of our three regional vaccination sites to get your COVID-19 vaccine at your convenience.
Anyone 12 and older is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in South Carolina. There is no out-of-pocket cost to be vaccinated. Walk-in hours are as follows:
- Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital, Harris Medical Pavilion entrance, 606 Black River Road, Georgetown, every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 9 a.m-4 p.m.
- Waccamaw Medical Park West, 4040 Highway 17, Suite 204, Murrells Inlet, Monday-Thursday, 9a.m.-4 p.m.
- Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common, 2200 Crow Lane, Myrtle Beach, Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Before your vaccination: Review the vaccine fact sheet
Tidelands Health is administering the Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Janssen Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. The FDA requires that everyone who receives a COVID-19 vaccine receive and review a fact sheet.

On the day of your vaccination
- If you have a health insurance card, please bring it. But, remember, there's no charge to you for the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, identification is not required.
Your vaccine record
You’ll receive a vaccination card at the time of your COVID-19 vaccination. This small, white card will list which vaccine you received, the date of your vaccination and where you were vaccinated. Please keep this card safe, as it is an important health record.
A few tips to protect your card
- Do not laminate your card. The lamination process could damage your card or make it hard to read.
- Make copies of your card, and store the original in a safe place – just as you would any other important document. Carry a copy in your wallet, or take a photo of your card and keep it on your phone.
- Do not post a photo of your card on social media. Your vaccination card contains personal information that could be used for identity theft. Instead, post a photo of your Tidelands Health “I took my shot!” sticker to share your vaccination pride.
If you lose your vaccination card
You can easily access a record of your COVID-19 vaccination via the Tidelands Health patient portal. Click here for more information.
