The California State University announced today that it will require faculty, staff and students who are accessing university facilities or programs to receive a vaccine booster shot in order to be fully immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and in compliance with the university's COVID-19 vaccination policy.​

Cal State East Bay President Cathy Sandeen shared some early details with the university community:

  • Cal State East Bay will require students, MPP and Confidential employees who are eligible to receive a vaccination booster to do so by February 28, 2022.
  • Those who are not eligible to receive boosters by February 28 will have six months after receiving their final initial vaccination dose to receive a booster.
  • Represented employees will not be subject to the booster requirement until the CSU concludes its meet-and-confer process with labor unions.
  • The university is working with local partners to offer a booster clinic on the Hayward Campus at the start of the New Year.
