UC Davis COVID-19 Vaccine Program  | UC Davis is helping administer COVID-19 vaccines, in line with state and county guidelines. With vaccine doses in high demand, we encourage you to get the vaccine where you can.

Medical or ADA Accommodations | Individuals with personal health issues who cannot receive the COVID-19 vaccine should seek a medical exception to the vaccine mandate as soon as possible. The deadline to comply with the mandate is September 1 for UC Davis Health and September 8 for all of UC Davis. Details about how to secure a medical exception are on the Campus Ready website.


Current campus testing requirements

Updated Sept. 15: To be compliant with the UC Davis Screening and Testing program, routine testing is now required of all registered students and Davis campus employees.

Starting on Sept. 9, unvaccinated students and employees are required to get tested at least every four days, regardless of when you access university-controlled facilities.

Starting on Sept. 20, students and employees who have verified they are fully vaccinated are required to get tested at least every 14 days — if their normal schedule requires they visit campus at least once per week. Fully vaccinated students or employees who visit campus less often than once per week (because of a flexible work agreement or remote class schedule) will need to get tested prior to accessing university facilities, either on the same day of their visit or up to 14 days prior to their visit. The requirement is scheduled to begin on Sept. 20, with the first round of 14-day testing due by Oct. 4 at the latest.

Fully vaccinated individuals are encouraged to get tested on a more frequent basis, voluntarily. The campus testing guidance aligns with CDC guidance that frequent COVID-19 testing contributes to low case rates in university and healthcare settings. Everyone must continue to adhere to all UC Davis public health policies.
