Reporting Outside Positive COVID-19 Tests

If you tested positive outside of UC San Diego, students should send results to shsmr@ucsd.edu and employees should send results to COEMexposure@health.ucsd.edu. More info is available on the Return to Learn website.

Booster Appointments

Appointments for Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine boosters are now available for all students. To remain “fully vaccinated,” students and campus employees are required to receive all recommended booster doses within 30 days (15 days for health care employees) of becoming eligible.

The CDC has authorized a mix-and-match approach, so you can select which brand of booster vaccine you want while scheduling your appointment. Currently, UC San Diego Health is offering all approved boosters.

Booster Eligibility:

  • Pfizer vaccine booster: must be 6 months or more since you completed your two-dose regimen of Pfizer vaccine.
  • Moderna vaccine booster: must be 6 months or more since you completed your two-dose regimen of Moderna vaccine.
  • Johnson & Johnson vaccine booster: must be 2 months or more since you completed your initial dose of J&J.

Locations:

  • Drive-up appointment at La Jolla
  • Drive-up appointment at Hillcrest Medical Center
  • Price Center campus clinic (appointments starting Nov. 15)
