COVID-19 Vaccination Resources & Information

As our city and country continue to take steps toward bringing an end to the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of vaccines is crucial to protecting our communities. With the significant protection that COVID-19 vaccines offer to individuals, we wanted to outline a few resources available to assist our families in accessing and understanding COVID-19 vaccines to make an informed decision for their household.

Walk-up Vaccination Sites in Washington, DC

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC ) recommends COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 12 years of age and older to help protect against COVID-19. Below is a list of walk-up vaccination sites around Washington, DC. The walk-up sites below are in addition to the pharmacies, clinics, and health care providers that are also administering the vaccines citywide. Below you will also find details on incentives available at three DCPS vaccination sites to DC youth who receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

We are committed to supporting our community in acquiring as much information as possible on COVID-19 and vaccinations.

Revisit these important conversations below.
