COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC) - South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and his wife received the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccine Monday.
Henry and Peggy McMaster received the first of their two Pfizer vaccines at a CVS Pharmacy in Columbia, according to a post on the governor’s Twitter feed.
“To those who want a shot, get a shot,” the post states.
The couple both tested positive for COVID-19 in December.
Peggy McMaster remained asymptomatic, but the governor experienced “mild symptoms with a cough and slight fatigue,” according to spokesman Brian Symmes. He received monoclonal antibody treatment days after testing positive.
The McMasters tested negative prior to attending a White House Christmas event in December and on Dec. 10 prior to meeting with then-Vice President Mike Pence.
The state’s first lady learned on Dec. 18 she tested positive and the governor learned of his positive test result on Dec. 22.
