I agree, that sounds great! Now that all employees of educational institutions are eligible for vaccination, when will we learn more about our partnerships with UCSF and UCR?
Thanks for your question, Andrea! Here’s an update from UCOP Operations: The situation with vaccine distribution in California is rapidly changing and will affect our vaccine supply and programs. We’ll communicate about how these changes impact our programs as soon as possible. In the meantime, though, make sure to register on myturn.ca.gov for updates about vaccine eligibility and availability. UC continues to face serious limitations in vaccine supply, so we encourage all employees who want the vaccine to take advantage of any opportunity they may have once they are eligible, for example through community vaccine events or their primary care providers, or pharmacies.
