COVID-19 Vaccine Effort
Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center strongly encourages everyone 5 and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine, which has proven to be safe and highly effective in controlling the spread of COVID-19.
Third Dose of Pfizer Vaccine
Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center (CPRMC) is now offering the third dose of the Pfizer vaccine to individuals at the Carolina Pines Medical Group Walk-In Clinic, that meet the below criteria:
The CDC recommends that the following groups should receive a booster shot of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completing their Pfizer primary series (i.e., the first 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine):
- people aged 65 years and older
- residents aged 18 years and older in long-term care settings
- people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions
The CDC also recommends that the following groups may receive a booster shot of Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine at least 6 months after completing their Pfizer primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks:
- people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions
- people aged 18–64 years at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting
These recommendations only apply to people who previously received a Pfizer primary series (i.e., the first 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine).
Individuals should speak to their healthcare provider about whether getting a Pfizer COVID-19 booster shot is appropriate for them.
As the prominence of COVID-19 continues to decrease in our community, we are pleased to announce that we are converting back to our pre-COVID visitation policy. We will now allow family and visitors in all patient care areas and our outpatient and main lobby entrances will now be open. We no longer require screening for entrance into the facility, but encourage everyone to self-screen. Please remember that masks are required for all staff, patients and visitors in our facility. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
