Booster Shot Clinic

CalArts requires that all faculty, staff, and students be fully vaccinated and required to receive a vaccine booster by Feb. 28, 2022. CalArts requires boosters be received six months after an individual received the final dose of the original vaccination, whichever is later. Those who received the J&J vaccine should already be eligible for the booster (eligibility is two months after your initial dose).

We all need to do our part to keep the campus safe. An on-campus clinic is available this week, Tuesday, Feb. 15 from 10 am to 2 pm in the Main Gallery.
