Influenza: As you may have heard, in 2021 President Drake issued an Executive Order requiring all covered UC students, faculty, other academic appointees, and staff to get vaccinated against influenza or opt out by submitting a vaccine declination statement. The Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Program policy has been updated for AY 2022-23 and we encourage all employees to visit this webpage and/or the UCOP website updates. The deadline for the flu vaccination is December 1, 2022.
SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19): For the safety and well-being of the entire university community, UC has implemented the COVID-19 vaccination policy. This policy requires, with few exceptions, that all students, faculty and staff be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, including appropriate boosters.
What's next? All employees shall comply with the Influenza and COVID-19 vaccines and boosters as appropriate. Save your records and we will reach out soon to let you know how to document your vaccination status, safely and securely.
