COVID-19 Vaccines

ALL Californians over the age of 12 are now elligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine! The university encourages our community to receive a vaccination as soon as it is available to them. The CSU announcement of a vaccine requirement will be conditioned upon full approval of one or more vaccines by the FDA, as well as adequate availability of the fully approved vaccines.

If a COVID-19 vaccination is required, Cal Poly Pomona will communicate with all faculty, staff and students via email and the vaccine Info webpage.
