COVID-19 Vaccine Information

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.

For more information on available vaccines, go to vaccinefinder.org.
