Coronavirus Testing

Pre-registration for Public Testing

It’s best to get testing through your provider, but if you need to use public testing, you can save time in line by visiting to create a profile from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Get Vaccinated


Take the Shot, DC.

**As of Wednesday, April 28 pre-registrations are no longer being accepted. See information below on DC transitioning to Walk-Up sites**

Transition to Walk-Up Sites Began Saturday, May 1

As of Saturday, May 1, the District transitioned to the use of 11 high-capacity, walk-up, no appointment needed vaccination sites. (Walk-up sites are for first doses. When you receive your first dose, you will still make an appointment to get your second dose.)

The walk-up sites will be in addition to the pharmacies, clinics, and health care providers that are also administering the vaccines citywide. These sites will operate their own scheduling systems.

Can't leave your home? 1-855-363-0333 and we'll come to you!

For any questions regarding the vaccine program, please email [email protected].

DC Residents Ages 16 & 17

DC residents who are 16 and 17 years old can now get vaccinated at walk-up sites and pharmacies across DC that are administering the Pfizer vaccine. Previously, DC Health was directing all 16- and 17-year-olds to register for a vaccination appointment through Children’s National, which families can still do.
