D.C. to Start New Vaccine Pre-Registration System

D.C. will revamp its system for coronavirus vaccination appointments, allowing all city residents to preregister starting next week.

Once preregistered either through the online portal or the city’s call center, residents will be notified via email, text or phone call when they’re eligible to make an appointment, the D.C. government announced.

But for this week, vaccine appointments will not be open to members of workforce groups currently eligible. Starting Thursday, only D.C. residents 65 years or older and those 18 to 64 with qualifying medical conditions will be allowed to sign up for their shots.

Essential workers such as grocery store employees, outreach workers and those employed in manufacturing will be paused for one week to give preference to other groups. Eligible residents will be contacted to register through the online portal.

The changes come in the wake of significant issues with the online registration system last week, which prevented thousands from signing up for the vaccine.
