Appointment Information

Currently, Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) is selecting and inviting eligible vaccine recipients to schedule an appointment through a computer randomized lottery process. Selection is based on available vaccine supply and a person’s eligibility in accordance with DC Health directives.

Eligible patients will be contacted via email, text message or phone call when it is their turn to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. We encourage you to activate your MyChart account if you have not already done so.

Add Yourself to the JHM Vaccine Waitlist

If you believe you are eligible and have not been contacted, you can add yourself to the JHM vaccine waitlist using your MyChart account.

If you do not have a MyChart account, please create one using this form.

After logging into your MyChart account, please take the following actions:

  1. You will see an announcement titled, “Add Yourself to Our COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist.” Click the button, “Confirm DC Eligibility.”
  2. Answer the form’s questions. Click “Continue.”
  3. Review your responses. Click “Submit.”
  4. The form will tell you if you are eligible based on the current criteria.

By completing this form, you have added yourself to Johns Hopkins Medicine’s COVID-19 vaccine waitlist. This is not an invitation to schedule your vaccination. Once you are on the JHM vaccination list, you will be contacted by email, text message or phone call when JHM is able to offer you a vaccination appointment.

Appointments Are Required. Walk-Ins Are Not Allowed.

Scheduling tickets, which will be received from Johns Hopkins Medicine, are required in order to book a vaccination appointment. Scheduling tickets are not transferrable.

We are working to distribute the vaccine to all eligible patients as quickly and equitably as possible. The demand for the COVID-19 vaccine far exceeds current supply. Johns Hopkins Medicine is eager to be a resource to our patients. As long as we have supply, we will continue to vaccinate eligible patients and others as we are authorized to do so.

We encourage you to take advantage of any and all vaccine options available to you. Visit the District of Columbia’s vaccination website to learn about other locations where you can get the COVID-19 vaccine. You can also call the city’s call center at 855-363-0333 to schedule your vaccination. If you are offered the COVID-19 vaccine at another vaccination site, please take it. You should not wait to get the vaccine from Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Please do not call Johns Hopkins Medicine or Sibley Memorial Hospital about scheduling your COVID-19 vaccination.

This vaccination service is being offered voluntarily. Vaccination is not required.

Safety Measures

For your safety and that of our staff members, patients should come alone to their vaccination appointment. Please do not bring children to the vaccination clinic. Patients may connect virtually to their loved ones via a smartphone during the appointment. Individuals with a disability are allowed one care partner to accompany them to the appointment. We cannot vaccinate care partners unless they have an appointment. Care partners must follow all safety protocols, including wearing a mask, washing their hands frequently and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet.

It takes at least two weeks beyond the second dose of vaccine for two-dose regimens and beyond vaccination for one-dose regimens for full protection to develop. Even after full vaccination, infection prevention measures such as wearing a mask, physical distancing and frequent hand-washing are still very important since you might be able to pick up the virus, carry it and give it to others. Learn more from our infographic, COVID-19 Vaccines: What You Need to Know.
