With vaccine supplies established at steady availability across the United States, the end of the pandemic is within our reach.

Vaccination is one of the most important steps in ending the pandemic. Each person who gets vaccinated brings us closer to a post-pandemic world.

Although 70 percent of Californians have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, we are still racing against time to immunize as many people as possible before the coronavirus can develop new variants. Vaccination rates in cities across LA County range from 20% to 79% (among ages 16 and older).

Why get vaccinated?

Do it for yourself, your family, and your community. When you’re vaccinated against COVID-19, you protect yourself from a deadly disease. Vaccinate to stop the spread to your friends, your family, your elders, and the people who work hard to keep our communities safe and open.

How do I get vaccinated?

Appointments are available at UPC at the Lyon Center through USC Student Health for students, faculty and staff. Go to usc.edu/myshr to see current appointments. Walk-ins are accepted between 9 am – 2 pm during clinic days.

What if I have questions and concerns about vaccination?

USC departments can arrange to have a medical provider answer questions about vaccination through a Zoom session—the “Ask A Doc” program allows members of the USC faculty and staff community to ask questions about the vaccines and their health.

Contact covid19@usc.edu to make arrangements, or to submit a question you have.


Together, we can end the pandemic. You can be a health care hero and help save lives.
