Safe Steps to Safe Schools

  • Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 Vaccination Initiative


    The science is clear – vaccinations are an essential part of protection against COVID-19. In order to reduce transmission and ensure students can remain on campus in the safest possible environment and receive the best education possible, Los Angeles Unified is requiring students 12 and older who attend school in-person to be in compliance with the vaccine requirement by the start of the Fall 2022 semester, unless the student has an approved medical exemption or qualifies for conditional admissions. Proof of vaccination or medical exemption must be uploaded to the Daily Pass. Students who have conditional admissions are not exempt from the mandate, but have a longer time frame to get the vaccine.

    Students turning 12 soon should receive their first vaccine dose no later than 30 days after their 12th birthday, and their second dose no later than 8 weeks after their 12th birthday.

    At this time, booster shots are not required for students, but are strongly encouraged for anyone 12 and over, five or more months after their second dose. Pfizer boosters are available for eligible 12+ year-old students at our Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

    Students and families that have questions or concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are encouraged to call our family hotline at 213-443-1300 and review our Frequently Asked Questions.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s have approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for 5- to 11-year-old children. We are delighted to be able to offer voluntary vaccine access to students in this age group. The COVID-19 vaccine is highly encouraged for children ages 5-11. 

    Almost all of the LA Unified stationary and mobile vaccine clinics have doses available for 5-11 year olds!
