COVID Vaccine Boosters
- CDC expands eligibility of COVID vaccine booster. The CDC has recommended booster doses of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for all adults 18 years and older, in alignment with the FDA’s expansion of the emergency use authorization for both vaccines.
- For those 18 and older who received their primary vaccination series with either Moderna or Pfizer, a booster dose can be administered at least six months after full vaccination (following the second dose). As previously recommended by CDC, for those 18 years and older who received their primary vaccination with the one-dose J&J/Janssen vaccine, a booster dose can be administered at least two months after the first vaccination.
- Any of the COVID-19 vaccines can be used for booster vaccination, regardless of the vaccine product used for primary vaccination.
- With COVID-19 vaccine so widely available in the community, UHS will not be providing COVID vaccine boosters broadly to the campus community, so that we can continue to focus on providing health services to our student population. Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to review the eligibility and to check myturn.ca.gov appointment availability
Vaccines are widely available in the community
Refer to the list of vaccine clinics around campus as an additional option.
Upload your outside vaccine records to eTang.
If you received the vaccine at an off-campus vaccination site, you will need to upload a record of your vaccination to the secure eTang portal as soon as you have received your last dose and have a complete vaccination card. If you were vaccinated on campus, no further action is required.
