Note to Prospective Applicants About UCSD’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate: UCSD and San Diego County Health policies mandate that all healthcare workers be up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations or have an exemption for medical or religious reasons (subject to review and approval). UCSD’s major affiliates have similar expectations. Those health care workers who are out of compliance may not participate in direct patient care.
