Six D.C. high schools will serve as coronavirus vaccination sites for residents ages 12 to 18, city officials announced this week.
The clinics — located at Cardozo, H.D. Woodson, Roosevelt, Dunbar, Ballou and Anacostia — aren’t restricted to D.C. Public Schools students, but rather are open to all city residents of age.
The schools should be contacted individually for dates, hours and the brand utilized.
Those younger than 18 must be accompanied by a guardian.
Mayor Muriel Bowser also announced this week that people who help individuals who help unvaccinated friends, family and neighbors get inoculated and accompany them to a vaccination site can receive a $51 Visa gift card.
The giveaway — part of the Take the Shot, DC Vaccine Buddy Program — allows people to redeem up to 11 gift cards (one card per unvaccinated D.C. residents that they accompany to a vaccination site).
People must be 18 or older to participate in the program and provide state-issued identification. The vaccinated individual will receive a gift card, also.
