D.C. will get 34,250 doses of the coronavirus vaccine this week after receiving less than 7,000 in the first shipment last week, according to the city health department.

The District will receive 8,775 doses of the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine from Virginia, 8,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine from Maryland, and 4,875 doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 12,600 doses of Moderna’s from the federal government, WJLA-TV (Channel 7) reported.

Roughly 4,500 health care workers and front-line workers having started their vaccinations, WJLA reported.

The second and third shipments of the Pfizer vaccine started Monday and will continue next week.

The inaugural shipments of the Moderna vaccine started Monday to several locations, including the St. Elizabeths Hospital and United Medical Center, WJLA reported.

An online registration system will be in place later this week for intermediate care facility staff, home health aides and urgent care workers, WJLA reported.

Health officials said workers among those groups who are not employed at locations getting the vaccine can go to Bread for the City, Community of Hope, Giant, Mary’s Center, Safeway and Unity Health Care to be immunized.

As of Tuesday, the city had 26,900 coronavirus cases and 744 related deaths, according to health department statistics.
