SC Lede: No Shirt, No Shoes, No Mask — No Problem

State vaccination rates have dipped by 1.4 percentage points since eligibility has expanded to include adolescents as young as 12.

On this edition of the South Carolina Lede for May 18, 2021, we discuss the latest South Carolina political news, speak with a cybersecurity expert about the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, hear how parents feel now that adolescents as young as 12-years-old are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccines, and more.

We want to hear from you! Leave us a 1-minute long voicemail at 803-563-7169 to tell us what your life has been like over the past year.

You can keep up with the latest updates on COVID-19 in South Carolina on the SCETV coronavirus page here.
