Vaccinations are available at no appointment needed walk-up sites for all DC residents.
Children 5 to 11 years old are now eligible to get vaccinated. The vaccine is safe and lowers the chance of children getting and spreading COVID-19. The vaccine is 90% effective at preventing symptoms of COVID-19. Children will receive a smaller dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine than adolescents and adults, approximately one-third the dose that people 12 and older get. Find a vaccination site for your 5 to 11-year-old.

On July 13, 2022 we held a Community Town Hall meeting in partnership with Privia Health, who supports us with COVID-19 care coordination and general wellness support. During this Town Hall, we shared details about the strong health & safety measures we have in place to ensure the health of our community and we previewed the COVID protocols we plan to implement at the start of the 22-23 school year. We also discussed details about how to ensure compliance with city-wide immunization policies (No Shots, No Schools) that will be enforced this year.
DC Prep has partnered with Privia Health to provide our school community with 24/7 access to a dedicated care team, virtual care options, and more. Privia’s team of nurses will begin contact tracing for our school as well as coordinating student and staff’s safe return to the classroom.
If you have any questions, contact Privia for help understanding and navigating your care options by emailing email@example.com, or calling (866) 514-4049.
