It's time: DC residents 65 and older to register for vaccine
Registration opens Monday at Noon.
Following CDC guidelines, the DC government is administering the vaccine in phases and will soon implement phase 1b/1c which includes residents 65 and older, those living in intermediate care facilities and group homes, and residents with high-risk medical conditions. Residents 65+ can register online on Monday, January 11th at noon at vaccinate.dc.gov
DC Health recommends signing up registering at vaccinate.dc.gov, even if you previously completed the vaccination questionnaire for the registry last week.
The vaccine will be given at local pharmacies and possibly other facilities, such as senior and recreation centers. When you complete the online form you will be given options on where to get vaccinated from several available sites throughout the city. Once you select your preferred site, you may select an appointment time. Finally, you will receive an email confirming your appointment place and time. The vaccine is not available at physicians offices at this time.
We are available to assist.
If you want the vaccine you should register. If you need assistance, ask a family member who is familiar with your personal medical information to assist you. Of course, the Village is also here to assist those that need assistance. For those seeking our assistance, please call the Village office on Monday at 202-615-5853. A volunteer or staff member will fill out the form on your behalf while you are on the phone with them.
