The University of California San Diego is expected to vaccinate roughly 5,000 people daily at its new vaccination site on campus.
Beginning Monday, the on-campus vaccine center will serve eligible members of the university community and UC San Diego Health patients. Qualifying individuals include health care workers and people age 65 and older.
More on the new vaccination
Patients who are eligible for the vaccine will be invited to schedule an appointment via the MyUCSDChart electronic medical record system while university employees can expect emails with instructions on how to book an appointment.
At this time, the vaccination site will only serve qualifying UC San Diego Health patients and university members. It is unclear when or if the public will be served at the location at a later date.
Personnel from UC San Diego Health and volunteers will be running the site at the Recreation, Intramural and Athletic Complex (RIMAC), which is located at 9730 Hopkins Dr. Depending on availability, either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine will be administered at the center.
The site will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
