Dear Tandem Health Patients and the Sumter Community,
We know you likely have questions about the distribution and availability of COVID-19 vaccines and what it means for you. We will update the community on our plans as we continue providing vaccinations for Tandem Health patients and community members.
Tandem Health now offers two COVID-19 Vaccines.
Moderna Vaccine - approved for individuals age 18 and older
Pfizer Vaccine - available for individuals age 5 and older
Here are the steps to request a vaccine:
1). Adult Patients: Tandem Health is scheduling COVID-19 vaccines by appointment to patients and community members Monday through Friday. Please call 803.774.4500 and follow the prompts. For Adult Medicine press 2 and then press 2 for the scheduling department.
2). Adolescent Patients (5 and up): Tandem Health Pediatrics is now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for children ages 5 - 11. The department will be administering vaccines on Thursday and Friday afternoons. Children do not have to be a current Tandem Health Pediatrics patient in order to receive the vaccine.
