Vaccination reqirement

On July 27, the California State University system announced that it will require faculty, staff and students who are accessing campus facilities at any university location to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Cal State East Bay will align with this requirement, and anyone who plans to be at the Hayward, Concord or Oakland Center campuses must be vaccinated or have a valid exemption. To allow time to become fully vaccinated or to request an exemption, the effective date of this requirement at Cal State East Bay will be September 15, 2021.

On-Campus Vaccination Clinics and Testing

As fall semester begins, Cal State East Bay will host two on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinics as well as regular on-campus COVID-19 testing for its students, faculty and staff at its Hayward location.

La Familia will administer the walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Aug. 17 and Sept. 14 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Old University Union, Lobby and Room 102. All three vaccines — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — will be offered. Individuals can get their first or second dose. 

Students, faculty and staff should bring a government issued ID such as driver’s license or Bay Card (hard copy or digital). Check in is at the West Loop Road entrance of the union. 

On-campus testing begins the week of Aug. 16 in front of the Student Health Center. Registration is required.
