The UC Office of the President (UCOP) is presently in the process of reviewing the UC Vaccination Policy, with plans to implement updates in August 2023.  As soon as the revised policy is approved, we will swiftly update the information and provide the latest details.  Read the letter we received from President Drake regarding important updates on COVID-19 vaccination requirements at the University.  

The following key points have been highlighted: 

  • Each year, students and employees will be required to either receive the COVID-19 vaccination or officially decline it. 

  • Documentation of receiving a COVID-19 primary vaccine series will no longer be necessary for students and employees. Consequently, there will be no need for submitting approved medical or religious exceptions, or disability deferrals to access campus facilities. 

  • Look out for future communications from the campus regarding the process of attesting or declining the COVID-19 vaccine similarly to the flu vaccine.
