Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians, 

We have an important update regarding eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine in Washington, DC:

Beginning Monday, April 19, all DC residents, ages 16 and older, will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Here is what we need you to do: First and foremost, if you are a DC resident who is not yet vaccinated and you have not yet pre-registered for an appointment, I need you to pre-register right now. 

  • You can pre-register on any day, at any time by going to
  • You can also pre-register by calling 1-855-363-0333. The call center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

If you are already vaccinated, we need you to reach out to your friends, family, and neighbors and talk to them about their plans to pre-register and get vaccinated. If you are nervous about getting vaccinated, talk to a friend, family member, or health care professional who has already been vaccinated. The vaccines are safe, effective, and the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and our community.

I am incredibly proud of our how our community has stepped up to respond to this pandemic. Now the end is in sight. Let’s finish the fight, DC.

Thank you and stay safe. 


Muriel Bowser
