With fall 2021 approaching quickly, University Health Services, or UHS, is offering free vaccines to all UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff at the Pauley Ballroom.

While those interested in receiving the vaccine are welcome to preschedule through the eTang website, no appointments are necessary. Drop-in hours range from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., according to the UHS website.

The clinic will be operating from Tuesday to Thursday throughout June, with the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine being offered Tuesdays, the Pfizer vaccine Wednesdays and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Thursdays.

On June 10, the city of Berkeley’s public health department will also offer the Pfizer vaccine at Casa Zimbabwe, part of the Berkeley Student Cooperative, located at 2422 Ridge Road.

Open to all students, faculty and staff, the clinic will provide vaccines from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., with both first and second doses available. Those seeking to receive their first dose must make an appointment at the Carbon Health vaccination website, while patients who are looking to receive their second dose can do so without prior scheduling so long as they are able to provide their current vaccination cards.

“We are strongly encouraging any students who are still on campus to get a vaccine before they travel home,” the UHS website reads. “It is important to ensure both your protection and that of your fellow travelers or loved ones.”

Correction(s):
A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that University Health Services, or UHS, would offer the Pfizer vaccine at Casa Zimbabwe on June 10. In fact, UHS was not involved in the organization of the clinic; it was coordinated by the city of Berkeley’s public health department.
