SC Lede: Vaxx Wars

SCDHEC SC Percent Vaccinated June 2021.jpg
Currently only 1.8 million or 43.4% of eligible South Carolinians are vaccinated against COVID-19 as new data from DHEC finds that 90% of those hospitalized during a two-week period in June were unvaccinated.

This episode of the South Carolina Lede for July 13, 2021, features: Gov. Henry McMaster's quarrel with the Biden administration over COVID-19 vaccine outreach efforts; recent fundraising numbers for the 2022 South Carolina governor's race; the latest COVID-19 data from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC); and more.
