UCLA vaccinations for employees and students

Faculty and staff

UCLA faculty and staff can schedule a vaccination through UCLA Occupational Health Services by calling 310-825-6771.

Appointments are estimated to last about 30 minutes. You will need to be observed for 15 minutes after your vaccination. In order to prevent waiting in line, you should arrive no earlier than five minutes prior to your appointment time. 

If there are currently no available appointments, keep checking back — new openings are added as doses become available. You can also schedule a vaccination appointment through California’s My Turn portal, a local public health department, a local pharmacy or the city of Los Angeles. See the “Where else can I get the vaccine?” section of this FAQ for details. 


Students

All UCLA students are now eligible to receive vaccinations in the U.S. UCLA is urging students to get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity, wherever that may be.

While the Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center is not currently offering vaccines, they anticipate being able to provide vaccines to students in early August 2021. Information will be shared with students in the coming weeks. Students can find out more through the Ashe Center’s COVID-19 vaccine hub for UCLA students.

An additional and perhaps quicker option for students may be to schedule a vaccination appointment through California’s My Turn portal, a local public health department, a local pharmacy or the city of Los Angeles. Please see the “Where else can I get the vaccine?” section of this FAQ for further details. 

Students who are not residents of California should check their local health department or visit the Vaccine Finder website to schedule a vaccination.

International students, likewise, are encouraged to get vaccinated at the earliest possible opportunity with the vaccines available to them in their home countries. (Note: Only vaccines authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization meet the university’s vaccine requirement.) International students who have not been vaccinated in their home countries and who are planning their return to the United States can also schedule vaccine appointments in California (see the “Where else can I get the vaccine?” section of this FAQ) and should plan to quarantine for the 10-day period after their vaccination.

For students below the age of 18, a parent or guardian will be required to accompany them to their vaccination appointment to provide consent. (Pfizer is currently the only authorized vaccine for people in this age group.)
