Vaccines for COVID-19
Updated: January 11, 2021
Vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 begins shortly on campus! The first shipment of vaccine (Moderna) is slated to arrive at UHS tomorrow, with planning in process to vaccinate all Phase 1a UC Berkeley staff, students, and faculty who are interested within the next 2 weeks. The UCB COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force is now beginning planning and preparation for Phase 1b, which is expected to include many more frontline staff at high risk of exposure as well as UC Berkeley faculty, staff, students, and emeriti ages 75 and over. Much remains fluid: vaccine (both type and quantity) is allocated to us from UCOP on a rolling basis one week at a time, prioritization guidance and requirements evolve daily, and we have a lot to learn still about this vaccine - but we are ready.
