Reminder to confirm vaccination status by this Thursday, Sept. 9

COVID-19 Response and Recovery Task Force

Dear Bruin Community:

This is a reminder to all UCLA students, faculty and staff to submit your proof of vaccination, request an exception or declare being fully remote for fall quarter by this Thursday, September 9 at midnight in order to be compliant with the University of California systemwide COVID-19 vaccination policy. This policy requires all faculty, students and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days prior to the start of the fall term (or September 1 for all UCLA employees who work in our hospitals and clinics), with limited exceptions. Previous campus messages about this were communicated on August 31August 16 and July 15.

Thank you to those who have already confirmed their vaccination information and to all UCLA students, faculty and staff for continuing to follow UCLA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols. These protocols include wearing face masks indoors, completing daily symptom monitoring using the UCLA COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring and Vaccination Verification System if coming to campus and checking clearance status on the UCLA COVID-19 Clearance Portal

We look forward to the coming weeks as we resume on-site working, learning and living. We appreciate your collective efforts to help make our Bruin community safer for everyone.
