COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) – Governor Henry McMaster received a COVID-19 booster shot on Tuesday.

It comes as the state faces a resurgence in virus cases, brought on by the omicron variant.

During a press conference last Wednesday, Gov. McMaster said he had not yet received his booster but planned to “pretty soon,” and would take the first lady with him.

Just short of a week later, both Gov. McMaster and First Lady Peggy McMaster shared that they had received their COVID-19 booster shot and encouraged others to do the same.

“If you want the shot, I encourage you to go get one,” he said.
