Get Vaccinated

Get your booster shot as soon as you are eligible. Need to schedule a vaccine or booster shot? Go to MyTurn for vaccination and booster locations and times.

Submit your COVID-19 Vaccination proof by uploading your vaccination card or requesting an exemption, deferral, or accommodation.   To be considered Fully Vaccinated under the UC COVID Vaccination policy, COVID-19 booster shots are required for faculty, staff and students as soon as they are eligible - generally, six months from your last vaccination dose.  

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.
