When will students be offered the vaccine?

Students who are 65 years of age and older are currently being vaccinated by UCLA.

The majority of students, because of their age, fall into the broader final category of Los Angeles County’s vaccine prioritization plan. It is not yet clear when they will receive invitations to be vaccinated, although the current estimate is sometime in May or June 2021, contingent on vaccine supplies.

The Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center is working with the campus and UCLA Health to determine the prioritization of students, with a focus on those with underlying health conditions that may place them in a higher-priority category. UCLA will be communicating with students directly as they become eligible. If you are a student and have the opportunity to get vaccinated elsewhere before receiving an invitation from UCLA, you are encouraged to do so.

If you graduate in spring 2021 before having been offered the vaccine through UCLA, you will continue to remain eligible for vaccination up until the time the next quarter begins.
