COVID-19 Vaccination

Effective March 1, 2023, the University of La Verne no longer requires vaccination, but highly encourages all individuals, students and employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and to keep their vaccines up to date.


All of the three major vaccines in use in the United States (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) are encouraged, as are any vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Full Vaccination and Booster Doses

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after they have received their second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or two weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) or have finished the series of COVID-19 vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization. For more information, visit the LA County Department of Public Health website.

Individuals are highly encouraged to get boosters in consultation with their health care provider.

Access to Vaccine

All individuals are eligible to receive the vaccine at no cost in California. Vaccines are readily available and vaccination sites are located throughout the state. To get a vaccine appointment or find a walk-in site near you, please visit the state’s vaccination website.
