About the Vaccine
The District of Columbia Department of Health (DC Health) continues to make progress with our COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning. We are working with the federal government and local partners within the District to plan for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine as doses become available. Periodically check this page to learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and the plans for the District.
District of Columbia COVID-19 Vaccination Plan
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) required all states and territories to turn in an interim plan for COVID-19 vaccine distribution on Oct. 16, 2020. These plans are living documents and will change over time as we learn more about the vaccines and determine the most equitable way to distribute them.
DC COVID Clinician Champions Program (DC CCCP)
The COVID-19 Clinician Champion Program (DC CCCP) is a partnership between DC Health and MSDC to provide a cadre of medical experts who can serve as speakers during meetings and events focused on COVID-19 and the importance and science behind the COVID-19 vaccine.
