UC Vaccination Policy

An updated revision of the University of California Vaccine Program Policy was issued on August 16, 2023, strongly recommending all members of the University community follow vaccine recommendations adopted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) applicable to their age, medical condition, and other relevant indications. The policy also allows for submitting an opt-out/declination of getting the annual influenza (flu) vaccine. 

To comply with the Flu and COVID-19 Vaccine Policy by December 1, 2023, students, faculty, and staff need to either:

  • get a flu vaccine and log those records into eTang in the Medical Clearances section. Flu vaccines are for the current flu season (August 1, 2023 or later).


  • submit a declination to be vaccinated on eTang in the Medical Clearances section.
