Why Get the COVID-19 Vaccine?
Vaccines have been recommended by California and the nation’s top medical experts. By getting vaccinated, you can protect yourself and help protect your fellow Waves.
Vaccines are safe and highly effective. All available vaccines in the US are authorized by the CDC and recommended to prevent COVID-19 illness.
Vaccines are available at no cost. Waves can get the vaccine for free no matter where they receive it.
They're the best way for us all to be together again. Getting our community vaccinated is allowing us to safely resume life on our campuses.
Each school continues to develop plans to address COVID-19 for the 2021–2022 academic year in coordination with the Pepperdine COVID-19 Community Response Plan.
