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.

About the Vaccine

The District of Columbia Department of Health (DC Health) continues to make progress with our COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning. We are working with the federal government and local partners within the District to plan for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine as doses become available. Periodically check this page to learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and the plans for the District.

District of Columbia COVID-19 Vaccination Plan

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) required all states and territories to turn in an interim plan for COVID-19 vaccine distribution on Oct. 16, 2020. These plans are living documents and will change over time as we learn more about the vaccines and determine the most equitable way to distribute them.
