Patient Vaccinations

The MIND Institute is proud to be part of the historic effort at UC Davis Health to vaccinate patients against COVID-19. A temporary vaccination clinic has been set up on site and is being managed by UC Davis Ambulatory Care. Though the vaccinations are happening in the MIND Institute building, the MIND Institute staff are not in charge of appointments.

UC Davis Health is currently scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments for patients ages 75 and over who have visited a UC Davis Health clinic or provider in the last 18 months. If you qualify you’ll be notified via MyUCDavisHealth to schedule an appointment. Vaccine appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The clinic cannot accept walk-ins. If you are unsure whether you qualify, please contact your primary care provider.

For questions about the patient vaccination process for vaccines, please call 916-703-5555 or visit theCOVID-19 vaccine information for patients page.

The UC Davis MIND Institute condemns the ongoing racism and violence targeting people of color. We are committed to fulfilling our mission to help all families affected by neurodevelopmental challenges and to promote equal access to high quality health care and education for all members of our community.
