WASHINGTON — D.C. Public Schools has come up with a unique way to get people vaccinated against COVID-19.
DCPS says they're combining this week's graduation ceremonies with pop-up vaccination clinics. The ceremonies all take place at Audi Field through Thursday. But while the class of 2021 gets to walk across the stage to get their diplomas, the graduates, friends and family can take time before and after the ceremony to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The clinics are open to any graduate and their guests over the age of 12.
Ceremonies are happening Monday for students at Coolidge, H.D. Woodson, Cardozo, Benneker and Roosevelt High Schools.

On Friday, DC Health gave away $51 gift cards to anyone who got their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The District also launched a new task force last week to encourage residents to get their shot.
