New walk-up COVID-19 vaccination sites for D.C. residents who are 65 years and older will open up across the city on Monday. 

Residents will be able to get vaccinated without booking an appointment at the sites, which will administer either the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Each site will be able to accommodate up to 30 walk-in appointments daily. 

Residents 65 and older can walk up during the days and times listed below while appointments last. Appointments at the Bald Eagle Recreation Center are designated for residents from Wards 7 and 8 and open to any resident from those two wards who is 18 or older.
