D.C. Shutting Down Walk-Up COVID Vaccination Sites

D.C. will close its walk-up coronavirus vaccination sites by the end of next month.

Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Wednesday that the Arena Stage site in Ward 6 will close on June 27, the R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center site in Ward 8 will close June 30, the University of the District of Columbia site in Ward 3 will close on June 24 and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Ward 2 will close June 20.

The city also will stop administering vaccinations at Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in Ward 5 and Kenilworth Recreation Center in Ward 7 on May 31.

Residents can still get vaccinated at pharmacies, clinics and health care centers throughout the city, the mayor said in a statement.

The city is dialing back its mass-vaccination efforts as more people get the shot and the vaccine supply outpaces the demand. As of Thursday, roughly 51% of D.C. residents have received at least one vaccine dose, with about 40% of the population fully vaccinated, according to government data.
