      Getting to DC's Walk-Up Vaccination Sites

      As of Saturday, May 1, Washington, DC has transitioned to the use of 11 high-capacity, walk-up, no appointment needed vaccination sites. Please be advised that designated walk-up sites are for first vaccination doses ONLY. After you receive your first dose, you still need to make an appointment to get your second dose. The walk-up sites are available in addition to pharmacies, clinics, and health care providers that are administering the vaccines throughout the District. These sites will operate their own scheduling systems.

      Know Before You Go

      Before heading out, check to see if there is a wait time at your walk-up site. Wait times are based on the estimated current number of people waiting in line and the number of vaccinators on site delivering vaccinations. goDCgo also encourages you to review the tips to commute with care so you can continue doing your part in helping the District reach pandemic recovery.

      To schedule your second vaccination, find a location near you. Then call or visit the provider website to make an appointment.
