COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Organ Transplant Patients

MUSC Health’s transplant team wants to keep patients safe and achieve the best possible outcome from organ transplant. Patients awaiting or under evaluation for organ transplant at MUSC Heath are now required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Unvaccinated patients currently in pre-transplant evaluation status or on the list awaiting transplant are required to receive their initial dose (or sole dose, if receiving Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) of COVID-19 vaccine by December 1, 2021. Patients who choose Moderna or Pfizer must receive their second dose by January 1, 2022.
  • Patients who previously received only the first dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna) must receive their second dose by January 1, 2022.

Patients may schedule their vaccine online or through our COVID Vaccine Call Center at 843-876-7227, option 2.
