Get Vaccinated

Submit your COVID-19 Vaccination proof by uploading your vaccination card or requesting an exemption, deferral, or accommodation.

Even if you are fully vaccinated, don't forget to Do Your Part! Unvaccinated individuals are required to do a little extra on their part.

See the UC Merced COVID-19 Directive and UC COVID-19 Policy for more details.


Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination is required for anyone who learns, lives, or works on campus.
Eligible exemptions and accommodations include medical, religious, or sincerely held beliefs and require submission for validation.

See the University of California COVID-19 Immunization Policy here. Check out UC Newsroom's The COVID-19 Vaccine was Developed Super Quickly. Here's Why It's Safe. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines, hear from our campus medical experts.
