Vaccinations for students

All UCLA students who are 16 and older 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 offering vaccines, the center is currently working with campus health officials to offer UCLA Health vaccination appointments to all consenting students. The Ashe Center is communicating directly with students about scheduling these vaccinations. Students can find out more about the process 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 to schedule a vaccination. International students, likewise, are encouraged to get vaccinated at the earliest possible opportunity in their home countries.

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 the only authorized vaccine for people in this age group.)
