Vaccinations through UCLA Health

UCLA employees will receive an email, a text or both inviting them to schedule a vaccine appointment. Appointments will be available on a first-come, first-served basis in several locations across the greater Los Angeles region. New appointment slots are added as UCLA Health receives supply from the state and its third-party administrator, Blue Shield. 

Once you have received an invitation, follow these step-by-step instructions (PDF) — also available in Spanish (PDF) — to schedule your appointment in myUCLAhealth. If you are unable to login or need to create an account, contact the myUCLAhealth support line at 855-364-7052. Support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses. When you schedule your appointment, you’ll select whether this is a first- or second-dose appointment. If you need a specific vaccine type to complete your series or because of your age, the system will only display the locations available to you. 

After you receive your first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you will be prompted to return to myUCLAhealth to schedule your second dose three to four weeks later. You must receive the same vaccine for both doses.

(Following guidance from the CDC and the FDA, UCLA Health has paused administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and is current offering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.) 

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, as we’ll add new appointments as doses are available. You can also schedule a vaccination appointment through the state, your 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.
