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 coronavirus.dc.gov/register to create a profile from your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Vaccination Registration


All 740 available appointments made available Friday, January 22, 2021 were filled. More appointments will be released this Thursday for District residents 65 and older in priority zip codes and/or residents who work in a health care setting. sign up for alerts via email or text for future announcements.
  
Currently demand for the vaccine in DC is much higher than the supply we are receiving from federal government. Mayor Bowser and DC Health continue to advocate for the federal government to send more vaccine so that we can meet the high demand for it and protect the lives of our residents and our workforce.

If you are not 65 and older and/or do not work in a health care setting in DC, please sign up for alerts via email or text for future announcements.

Thank you again. Together, we will save lives and end this pandemic.
