How to make a COVID-19 vaccination appointment in DC

It just got easier to get vaccinated in the district. Here's how.

WASHINGTON — So you want to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but need to know how to book an appointment. You’re in the right place.

Here's the catch: Just because you're eligible does not mean making an appointment will be easy. Supply is still much lower than demand. But below, we've provided all the information we can find with step-by-step instructions.

1. AM I ELIGIBLE?

All DC residents 16 and older are eligible to get the vaccine. 

2. YES, I AM ELIGIBLE! HOW CAN I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT? 

Hooray! For general vaccine rollout information visit this link: https://coronavirus.dc.gov/vaccine

DC's pre-registration system has been discontinued.

Now, the district is using walk-up sites, with no appointment needed. There are sites in every ward.

These sites are walk-up for your first dose, but when you get that first shot you'll make an appointment for your second dose. 

Check out this month's walk-up schedule, including the site locations and which vaccine is being offered at each site, here

You can also get vaccinated at pharmacies, clinics and health care providers around the district. To find those vaccine opportunities near you, click here.

You can also book an appointment through CVS Pharmacy.

If you are a hospital patient, veteran, health center patient or 16-17 year old district resident, follow the instructions below:
