COVID-19 Policy Updates 

Effective May 2023: University of California announces updated COVID-19 vaccination policy.

UC COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement
(for students enrolled in courses and programs that meet on the UCI campus)

Once each year, typically in the fall, UCI will require students and campus employees to either attest to having received the most current COVID-19 vaccine or to decline the COVID-19 vaccine.

You do not need to take any action currently.  Watch for campus communications later this year on how to attest to or decline the COVID-19 vaccine.

What has changed with this most recent policy revision announcement?

  • There will no longer be a requirement for new campus employees or new students to submit evidence of a COVID-19 primary vaccination series.
  • Students will no longer be required to submit documentation of a COVID-19 primary series or submit and receive an approved medical or religious exception, or disability deferral to be present on campus.

Help keep UCI Healthy. Stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination.

While UCI will only assess COVID-19 vaccine policy compliance on an annual basis, we recommend everyone in the UCI community stay up to date with the most current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 Vaccination Recommendations.
