Vaccine Information

The Village is pleased to pass along the following information about various options available for those 65 and older to request a vaccination appointment. You may also sign up to receive a text or email alert from the DC government about the availability of their appointments by clicking here.

When scheduling your appointment, please know that if you've had another vaccination, such as for shingles, within the last 14 days, you will not be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Please keep this in mind before scheduling your appointment.

Appointment Registration Assistance:

The Edlavitch Jewish Community Center has launched a partnership with the students at George Washington University Hillel to help older adults in our communities (DC, Virginia and Maryland) get enrolled for vaccinations. If you need assistance/tech support in making an appointment, click here to sign up to receive assistance from a GW student.

COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Options:

  1. Schedule an Appointment through the DC Website

Appointment registrations open up each week on the DC vaccine website and are available to any DC resident who is 65 and older or any individual who works in a health care setting in DC.If you previously attempted to get an appointment and you did not receive a notification with a confirmation code, date and location, you must re-register. 

  1. Schedule a Hospital Appointment

District hospitals have started outreach to schedule their patient population of DC residents 65 years and older.  Please visit the hospital website where you are a patient (seen by the hospital in an outpatient clinic within the last two years) for instructions on how to register for an available appointment. Like the District’s COVID-19 vaccination scheduling portal, hospital appointments are limited.  

  1. Schedule a Health Center Appointment

District Health centers are also scheduling their patient population of DC residents 65 years and older. If you are a patient at one of the following health centers, please contact them to see if there is any schedule availability for appointments. Of note, allocations of vaccine are very limited.
