DC to Launch Pre-Registration System for COVID-19 Vaccination

-

The District of Columbia will offer a pre-registration system for its residents to make COVID-19 vaccination appointments, starting next week.

Through the online system, residents will be able to provide required information to DC Health in order to sign up for receiving the coronavirus shot. Alternatively, they can contact the District’s call center.

When DC Health releases vaccination appointments, individuals who have pre-registered will receive an email, phone call, and/or text message to notify them that they have the chance to schedule an appointment.

In addition, eligibility for certain populations such as essential workers, including the recently eligible grocery store employees, outreach workers and workers in manufacturing, will be paused for one week.

Residents 65 years or older will be prioritized in registration, along with people between the ages 18 and 64 who have qualifying medical conditions.

“Equity will continue to be a top priority, and DC Health will continue to set aside appointments for residents living in priority zip codes,” the Department said in a statement.

New vaccination sites will also open soon in the District.

The city’s residents recently experienced major issues while attempting to sign up for getting the coronavirus vaccine when the online registration website crashed.
