Flu Vaccine

The flu vaccine is recommended for anyone over the age of six months to protect against influenza viruses that may cause the most illness during flu season. Contact your primary care provider if you seek to receive the vaccine. The vaccine is also available at select grocery stores and pharmacies located throughout the District. As a part of the District’s immunization efforts, DOH offers the flu vaccine through its Immunization Program clinic located at 77 P Street, NE. The clinic is ONLY for underinsured and uninsured District residents.

DC Immunization Express Clinic

Also for District residents, DOH operates a walk-in immunization “express” clinic that provides assessments and immunizations for uninsured and underinsured children and a limited number of uninsured adults. The clinic is open Mondays and Tuesdays (except federal holidays) from 10 am - 2 pm, and is located at:

77 P Street, NE
Washington, DC 20002

DOH works to ensure that all District children are up to date on their immunizations (also called vaccines or shots). For more information, including required documentation, please call (202) 576-7130. The DOH Immunization Program offers the following:
