(Washington, DC) –

Today, DC Health announced that on Thursday, May 13, DC residents who are 12-15 years old can begin getting vaccinated at walk-up sites, hospitals, health centers, and pharmacies across DC that administer the Pfizer vaccine. Earlier this week, the FDA extended the Emergency Use Authorization for Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 Vaccine to ages 12 and older and today the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended the Pfizer vaccine for use in adolescents 12-15 years of age.
