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.

Employees who are UCLA Health patients also have the option of booking an appointment through myUCLAhealth. (If you don’t have an account, view instructions on how to sign up. If you are unable to login or need help creating an account, contact the myUCLAhealth support line at 855-364-7052.)

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. 

You can also schedule a vaccination appointment through California’s My Turn portal, Vaccines.gov, 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 now, wherever that may be.

The Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center is currently offering mRNA vaccines to students. Information on how to schedule an appointment is available 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.

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.)

As a final option, UCLA will be holding an Immunization Requirement Fair at which COVID-19 vaccines, along with other immunizations, will be available for students who have been unable to secure an authorized vaccination. The fair will run from Sept. 20 to Oct. 1 at Collins Court in the John Wooden Center.
