From DC Health:

“Beginning at 9:00 am on Thursday, January 21, 2,235 additional vaccination appointments will be made available for District residents who are 65 years of age and older and/or health care workers and who live in priority zip codes.

The priority zip codes cover most of Wards 1, 4, 5, 7, and 8 and include: 20001, 20002, 20009, 20010, 20011, 20012, 20015, 20017, 20018, 20019, 20020, 20030, 20032, 20039, 20040, 20056, 20059, 20060, 20064, 20223, 20242, 20260, 20306, 20317, 20340, 20373, 20375, 20422, 20441, 20509, 20542, and 20593.

Priority zip codes include areas of the city where residents are disproportionately affected by COVID-19, including number of cases and mortality rate.

Demand for the vaccine is high, and we anticipate the appointments to fill quickly. If you have internet access, you should register for an appointment through vaccinate.dc.gov. If you do not have internet access, call the District’s hotline at 855-363-0333 beginning at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow to register for an appointment.

On Friday, January 22, at 9:00 a.m., 740 additional appointments will become 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. We appreciate your patience as we work together to get Washingtonians across all eight wards vaccinated.

Currently demand for the vaccine in DC is much higher than the supply we are receiving from federal government. Mayor Bowser and DC Health continue to advocate for the federal government to send more vaccine so that we can meet the high demand for it and protect the lives of our residents and our workforce.”
