Dear campus community,

The clinics are in partnership with Ralphs and Albertsons pharmacies and will be offered on Tuesdays and Fridays. All clinics will be held in the lower-level lobby of the Division of Continuing Education (building 8 on the campus map.) Parking spaces will be held for vaccine clinic participants in lot 17A and Anteater Parking Structure.

The clinics will operate from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the following dates:

Tuesdays (Operated by Ralphs Pharmacy)

  • Feb. 1
  • Feb. 8
  • Feb. 15

Fridays (Operated by Albertsons Pharmacy)

  • Feb. 4
  • Feb. 11
  • Feb. 18
  • Feb. 25

Please be advised that these clinics are hosted and managed by either Ralphs or Albertsons Pharmacies – not UCI Student Health Center nor UCI Health. Therefore, registration, appointment scheduling and administration of vaccinations are governed by the protocols of the individual retail pharmacies.

For detailed information regarding how to schedule an appointment, what to bring to your appointment, and other important information, please visit the UCI Forward website.

Although walk-in appointments will be accepted, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you make an appointment to ensure sufficient vaccine supply and to reduce wait times.


In order to be compliant with the UC policy, students, faculty, and staff must upload their booster vaccination record and enter the date of their booster shot on either the Student Health Portal (students only) or the Occupational Health Database Portal for (faculty and staff only). UCI staff will be available at the clinics to assist you with uploading vaccine records.
