Your Questions Answered
Question: Can I receive a different brand of COVID-19 booster than my original doses?
Answer: Yes, 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, including Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
Question: Is COVID-19 booster vaccination required by the UC mandate?
Answer: No. Currently, the University of California vaccine mandate does not require the COVID-19 vaccine booster (third shot) as part of being compliant with the mandate.
Question: Do I need to get a flu vaccine if I work remotely?
Answer: No. You are not required to get a flu vaccine if you solely work remotely, but it is highly encouraged. However, if your job requires you to go to a UC San Diego worksite for any reason or duration, you must first meet the requirements of the executive order by documenting you have received a flu vaccine or are declining to receive the flu vaccine (in which case you will need to mask for the duration of the flu season).
