DC Health announced Friday that DC residents who are 16 and 17 years old can now get vaccinated at walk-up sites and pharmacies across DC that are administering the Pfizer vaccine.
Previously, DC Health was directing all 16- and 17-year-olds to register for a vaccination appointment through Children’s National, which families can still do.
Beginning today, 16- and 17-year-olds can get vaccinated at the following District walk-up sites whenever they are open. They will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian:
