WASHINGTON (WDVM) — Beginning Oct. 13, two COVID-19 vaccination sites in the District of Columbia will offer flu shots in addition to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fort Stanton Recreation Center (1812 Erie Street SE) and Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC) (3101 16th Street NW) will offer flu shots for residents ages 3 and older, in addition to COVID-19 vaccinations for those who are eligible.

Looking ahead to Tuesday, October 19, Benning Library (3935 Benning Road NE) will also offer flu shots. The site will also be changing hours for Tuesdays and Wednesdays and will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
