Student Vaccination Requirement
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 now requiring all students who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination to be fully vaccinated by Monday, January 10, 2022, unless they have a qualified exemption. Proof of vaccination must be uploaded to the Daily Pass.
Students who are 12 years of age and older and are part of athletics programs must receive their second Pfizer dose by no later than October 31, 2021. Students who are 12 years of age and older must receive their first vaccine dose by no later than November 21, 2021 and their second dose by no later than December 19, 2021. All other students must receive their first vaccine dose by no later than 30 days after their 12th birthday, and their second dose by no later than 8 weeks after their 12th birthday.
Students and families that have questions or concerns regarding the vaccine are encouraged to call our family hotline at 213-443-1300 and review our Frequently Asked Questions.

Vaccinations for Students Ages 5-11
With the recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s approval of 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. However, it will not be part of Los Angeles Unified’s current student vaccine requirement.
Beginning November 8, our mobile vaccination teams will offer the vaccine to students in this age group.
Starting on November 16, 13 school-based family and wellness centers will offer the vaccine to students 5- to 11-years old. (These wellness centers already offer vaccinations to students 12 and older.) We will also have school-based clinics offering the vaccine on select Saturdays (more info to come). Walk-ins are welcome, and appointments can be made on the Daily Pass.
