Limited Medical Appointments

Due to staffing shortages and the current focus on COVID, we currently have a limited amount of medical appointments available at UHS. This is temporary: we are working to improve access to our services, and expect to resolve this soon.

We are currently prioritizing care for those with timely medical needs including:
  • recent injuries requiring a clinical exam, X-ray, splinting, or crutches
  • acute or worsening illnesses
  • any care requiring prescription medication
  • COVID-related care
  • those that need to establish medical care for ongoing health issues

UC Booster Shot Requirement - Due Jan. 18
Under UC policy, UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students are required to obtain a booster shot as soon as they are eligible. Our campus expects all faculty, staff, and students who are eligible to get their booster no later than the start of instruction on Jan. 18 (or by the first day you are on campus if you will be on campus before Jan. 18). Please review the instructions for how to update your vaccination record in eTang with your booster information.
