According to the CDC, South Carolina has received the least amount of vaccine per capita out of all 50 states.

On Friday, Governor Henry McMaster held an impromptu press conference and voiced concern that the vaccine rollout has been too slow.

“It’s not moving fast enough,” he said. “We’ve got to get the vaccination into arms, and what we’re telling those that have been authorized to give the vaccinations is give as many as you can as fast as you can, don’t hold back.”

On Wednesday, South Carolina health officials announced they would vaccinate people 70 and older but many people struggling to get an appointment.

The state only gets so much vaccine to distribute each week. Officials say in South Carolina, it’s consistently been about 63,000 doses each week. And while they’re expanding appointments to anyone 70 or older, they’re not expecting a larger supply from the federal government.
