Vaccine Exchange Program for District Employers and Community-Based and Faith-Based Organizations to Host a Vaccine Clinic for Employees or Members

The Vaccine Exchange Program connects District organizations, including faith-based and community-based organizations as well as District employers, with vaccine providers that can assist with providing COVID-19 vaccinations to large groups in the community or workplace. Through the program, organizations are now able to submit requests for a vaccine clinic and vaccine providers are able to accept those requests and schedule clinics. Organizations interested in offering a vaccination clinic can submit a request here.
