We are working to institute new sanitation procedures to ensure we are compliant with UCI Health and Safety Mandates, and to ensure we can provide a clean and satisfactory experience for our students.

Together We Can Fight COVID-19

COVID-19 has significantly impacted our way of life, but the only way to get through this is if we all do our part to help stop the spread of this deadly disease. The best way to do that is to get your COVID-19 vaccine and follow local mandates and suggestions. To learn more about what you can do and what UCI is requiring, please visit the UCI Forward page. 

Thee Who Hesitates – Vaccine Hesitancy

Actor/Writer Kelly Perine’s Docu-Narrative on COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy within the African-American community and other communities of color.

“On April 24th, 2021, I got my 2nd vaccination shot. I’d been locked down like the rest of the world, for over a year. Now mere months later, with the Delta variant running rampant and the disease continuing to spread, the vaccination rates of African-Americans have dropped and infection rates risen. Why?

In “Thee Who Hesitates” I pondered that question.”
