Arena Stage has partnered with DC Health and MedStar Health to support and provide an accessible and safe location to help steadily vaccinate DC residents. The site will operate Thursdays to Sundays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the next three months.
“Arena Stage is so happy to be asked to play this role for our community. We can promise everyone a warm and gracious greeting as these essential vaccines are administered by the talented folks at MedStar Health,” said Arena Stage Executive Producer Edgar Dobie. “All of this is made possible by the inspiring and tireless team at the District’s Department of Health.”
The vaccination site at Arena Stage serves as the only high-capacity vaccination clinic located in Southwest DC. Providers from across the entire MedStar Health system are coming together to give as many as a thousand shots per day at the vaccination center. Those eligible must make appointments through vaccinate.dc.govor by calling 1-855-363-0333, not through MedStar Health.
As of Monday, April 12, all DC residents 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Washington, DC. Pre-register at vaccinate.dc.gov. As soon as a vaccination appointment is available, you will be contacted.
