COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement: The University of California requires all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including a booster dose, to access University facilities and programs. Students who cannot provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination may experience delays in clinical or field placement, extended completion times and the inability to meet course requirements for certification.  Limited allowance for medical and religious exemption is reviewed with supporting documentation.  Regardless of vaccination status, students may also be required to participate in periodic COVID-19 surveillance testing in accordance with UCLA and local public health guidance.
