COVID Vaccination Policy

Updated Nov. 3, 2022

As required by UC Policy, LBNL requires everyone to follow the CDC's recommendations to be up-to-date with the COVID-19 vaccine.

Being up-to-date means that:

  • You have received the primary COVID-19 vaccine


  • You have received the updated bivalent booster, if eligible. The bivalent booster became available on September 2, 2022.

Although UC has issued an updated vaccination policy, it is going through a formal review process and will not be finalized until early 2023. The Lab is currently evaluating how to monitor and enforce this not-yet-final policy. As a result of this uncertainty, the Occupational Health Record (OHR) is unavailable at this time for uploading documentation of a bivalent booster.
