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.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine

All appointments made available on Friday, March 5 at 9:00 a.m. have been booked. Thank you for your patience.

Under 18 with Qualifying Medical Conditions?

For District residents who are 16 or 17 years of age and have a qualifying medical condition, not an existing patient of Children's National Hospital or HSC, please pre-register for a vaccination at Children’s National Hospital by clicking here.


Medical Conditions List

If you previously attempted to get an appointment and you did not receive a notification with a confirmation code, date and location, you must re-register. We appreciate your patience as we work together to get Washingtonians across all eight wards vaccinated.

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 years old or older; have a qualifying medical condition (18 and older); or are a member of an eligible workforce, 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.

DC COVID Clinician Champions Program (DC CCCP)

The COVID-19 Clinician Champion Program (DC CCCP) is a partnership between DC Health and MSDC to provide a cadre of medical experts who can serve as speakers during meetings and events focused on COVID-19 and the importance and science behind the COVID-19 vaccine. Request for speakers can be made through the DC Health Community Outreach Request Form.
