Mayor Bowser and DC Health announced the opening of four new COVID Centers with four additional locations set to open on Monday, January 24. The COVID Centers represent the District's long-term commitment to expanding access to COVID-19 vaccines, boosters, and testing opportunities by providing fixed locations with longer hours.
“Getting vaccinated, getting boosters, getting tested and wearing our masks is how we will get through this,” said Mayor Bowser. “With the COVID Centers, we are doubling down on our commitment to equity and accessibility and ensuring that we have the systems in place to support a long-term response that can be quickly scaled up or down and modified to meet the needs of our community.”
At the COVID Centers, people will have access to take-home vaccines, boosters and rapid antigen tests, as well as a new walk-in testing opportunity that will allow residents to administer and record a PCR test themselves. .
COVID Centers in Districts 1, 2, 7, and 8 will open today at 1:00 p.m. and remain open until 8:00 p.m. COVID Centers in Districts 3, 4, 5, and 6 will open Monday, January 24 . More information about the four sites opening next week will be shared later this week. All sites will be open six days a week, with sites rotating so that on any given day of the week multiple COVID Centers are open in DC. Hours for the four sites opening today are listed below.
