Scheduling A First Dose

Appointments to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should be booked through the DC COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Portal. Openings are made available through the portal as DC receives additional doses of the vaccine

You are encouraged to check the Vaccine Appointment Portal daily before 10 AM.

Assistance can be requested through the DC COVID-19 Call Center at855-363-0333 or by writing to DC Health.

The provider that administers the first dose will provide instructions on how to register for the second dose. In some instances, the second dose will be administered at the same location. Other providers, including Safeway, will make arrangements to administer the second dose at a different facility. Please follow the instructions of the provider regarding the registration process and vaccination locations.

General information about scheduling the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available on the DC Second Dose Information Page. The following information is adapted from the DC Second Dose Information Page. Please direct questions to the respective provider via the following contact information:
