The GW Medical Faculty Associates (MFA) and the GW Hospital – as well as health systems across the country – are working to get as many patients vaccinated as quickly as possible to support the wellness of our community. We encourage individuals to take advantage of all vaccine options available in their state and local areas (see below).

We are currently following vaccine distribution guidelines from the District of Columbia and DC Health, which requires that our D.C. vaccines be provided to D.C. residents. Beginning Monday, April 12, all D.C. residents 16 and older will become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Washington, D.C.

Patients and others will be contacted based on a prioritized randomization algorithm on a rolling basis.

We know that many people are eager to be vaccinated, and we are working to provide vaccinations as quickly as possible.

To ensure that our department phone lines remain open to all patients’ care needs, please do not call your provider’s office to inquire about your vaccination status.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work through this process!

We have many valued patients outside of the District. We encourage our patients who live outside the District to access COVID-19 vaccine information from the health department in the state, city, or county where they reside.

Appointment Information


​Appointment times for the COVID-19 vaccine are in high-demand. We are committed to offering as many vaccination appointments as our supply allows.

  • We are currently notifying patients and individuals by email and/or phone/text on a rolling basis, based on appointment availability.
    • Your email will include an invitation to register in MyChart and complete a questionnaire.
    • After registration, GW will employ a prioritized randomization algorithm to invite patients to receive a COVID-19 vaccine on a fair, equitable rolling basis; therefore, it may take time to receive this scheduling invitation. Patients should wait for this scheduling email. Please do not call your provider's office to check your status. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
  • Patients must be able to receive both doses of the Pfizer vaccines with GW. Please do not schedule your vaccine if you have already received a dose elsewhere or do not plan to receive your second dose with GW.
  • If the appointments are already filled by the time you reach out to schedule your vaccine appointment, please continue to check the calendar, as more appointments will open on a regular basis.
  • Please do not arrive at our vaccination clinic without an appointment, as we will be unable to accommodate vaccinations on a walk-in basis.

GW is committed to fostering the health of the community. As a care providing organization located in Washington, D.C., we are required by DC Health to only vaccinate our patients who reside in the District.

We have many valued patients outside of the District. We encourage our patients who live outside the District to access COVID-19 vaccine information from the health department in the state, city, or county where they reside.
