Vaccine Information

On March 2, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) announced updated eligibility requirements for future phases of COVID-19 vaccines. Governor McMaster included both K-12 AND Higher Education as “frontline workers” who can receive vaccinations in Phase 1B if they meet the eligibility guidelines as stated on the DHEC website.

The determination of whether a specific job situation has an “increased occupational risk” per the DHEC eligibility guidelines is up to the individual worker and the vaccine distributor. Employers do not make eligibility determination. We encourage all members of the Clemson community to utilize DHEC resources to determine their eligibility and secure a vaccination appointment.
