All UC Riverside employees are now eligible to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine under Phase 1B of the State of California’s vaccine allocation guidelines, which allows for those working in the education sector to receive a vaccine. This message contains important information about employment verification and vaccine availability.

We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to receive the vaccine through county vaccination clinics, your healthcare provider, or local pharmacies that are serving the education sector. Everyone is encouraged to get first and second doses at the same location.

To find a vaccination clinic in Riverside County, please visit the Riverside County Public Health vaccine information page.


To find a vaccination clinic in San Bernardino County, you can find a list of vaccine clinic locations on the county website.

UCR continues to receive a limited supply of Moderna vaccines through UCR Health but does not have enough doses to vaccinate all employees at this time.

Employment verification

To qualify for vaccination under the current tier, employees may need to provide proof of employment at a vaccination site. To obtain a copy of employment verification, UCR employees can visit the UC Path portal. Once signed in, select Employee Actions, then Income and Taxes, then Verification of Employment, and finally Generate Summary Report to download the auto-generated statement. Please take this with you to your vaccination appointment. If you have questions or need assistance securing your UCR employment verification, please contact your Human Resources Business Partner

Other information and questions

Many employees have inquired about vaccinations for family members. Family members of UCR employees who are in an approved tier for vaccination may sign up as a patient of UCR Health in order to be eligible to receive a vaccine.

You may find answers to additional questions on our COVID-19 Vaccines page

Vaccinations provide an important tool in improving the health and safety of our communities. For anyone questioning if they should get a vaccination, Vice Chancellors Deborah Deas and Rodolfo Torres offer more information to UCR employees:
