Coronavirus Homepage Welcome

Children 5 to 11 years old are now eligible to get vaccinated. The vaccine is safe and lowers the chance of children getting and spreading COVID-19. The vaccine is 90% effective at preventing symptoms of COVID-19. Children will receive a smaller dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine than adolescents and adults, approximately one-third the dose that people 12 and older get.

New DC Government sponsored vaccination clinics are posted daily. 

Booster shots are now available for residents who are 18 and older and received a second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine on or before June 6, 2021.

Booster shots are now available for residents who are 18 and older and received a Johnson and Johnson vaccination on or before October 6, 2021.
