Hours of Operations
Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. DHEC Announcement for Phase 2 Vaccine Availability
DHEC has announced Phase 2 vaccine availability (Age 16+) effective Wednesday March
31st. The combination of Required Monthly Testing (supported by effective contact
tracing and now vaccine deployment) paired with disciplined use of risk mitigation/public
health practices among the campus community, is enabling us to quickly identify and
respond to COVID at UofSC, and we strongly encourage getting vaccinated as soon as
your schedule permits. Complacency, however, risks new rises in infection rates. Regardless
of your vaccination status, continued compliance with required testing is critical,
as is your ongoing use of good public health practices – Wear a mask, Wash your hands
and Watch your distance – and continue to limit unnecessary social interaction (especially
evenings and weekends). Our active use of these public health practices is the foundation
for our success, so let’s finish strong together. Finally, as Gamecocks, we have a
responsibility to the greater Columbia community, so always abide by local public
health policies and ordinances and thank you for holding true to the tenants of the
Carolinian Creed in all that you say and do. Go Gamecocks!
No cost flu shots are now available for students, faculty and staff at the Center
for Health and Well-Being. Walk-ins are welcome.

to determine how widespread COVID-19 has been in our community by getting a no cost

The whole process could take as little as 10 minutes. Results should be back in 2-3
days and posted to your
MyHealthSpace account. Learn more.
Counseling and psychiatry services will be delivered primarily through video or over
the phone to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. In-person visits will be the exception

possible, we will return to traditional in-person services.
