Letter from the Mayor
We have an important update regarding eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine in Washington, DC:
Beginning Monday, April 19, all DC residents, ages 16 and older, will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Here is what we need you to do: First and foremost, if you are a DC resident who is not yet vaccinated and you have not yet pre-registered for an appointment, I need you to pre-register right now.
- You can pre-register on any day, at any time by going to vaccinate.dc.gov.
- You can also pre-register by calling 1-855-363-0333. The call center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
If you are already vaccinated, we need you to reach out to your friends, family, and neighbors and talk to them about their plans to pre-register and get vaccinated. If you are nervous about getting vaccinated, talk to a friend, family member, or health care professional who has already been vaccinated. The vaccines are safe, effective, and the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and our community.
I am incredibly proud of our how our community has stepped up to respond to this pandemic. Now the end is in sight. Let’s finish the fight, DC.
