Vaccination Information


Butte County Public Health has not reached the vaccination tier for Chico State students. Students should refer to the State of California COVID Vaccination Prioritization Tier(opens in new window) and their local public health department for vaccine availability.

Faculty and Staff

Butte County Public Health has moved into the State of California COVID Vaccination Prioritization Tier(opens in new window) “Phase 1b,” which includes vaccination of “frontline essential workers” such as educators. 

BCPH is preparing to vaccinate all active Chico State faculty and staff who volunteer including state, Associated Students, and Chico State Enterprises employees. Student employees are not included in this tier. The vaccination is not mandatory. 

Vaccination Appointment Sign-ups

Vaccine appointment sign-ups with Enloe Medical Center will be on a first-come, first-served basis to ensure all slots are filled. Enloe will begin taking calls for appointments on January 14. To assist Enloe with the large call volume, employees should wait to make their appointment until the day designated for their last name grouping. (All employees who want a vaccine will receive one, so don't worry if you're in a later grouping.)

To schedule an appointment, call 530-332-9520 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on your last name grouping day. 

Last Name Grouping to Schedule Appointments

  • A–D | Thursday, January 14
  • E–K | Friday, January 15
  • L–P | Tuesday, January 19
  • Q–V | Wednesday, January 20
  • W–Z | Thursday, January 21

Appointment Details

Vaccination appointments are for active Chico State, CSE, and AS staff and faculty only and must be scheduled with Enloe Medical Center.

  • Appointments are required. 
  • When you call to schedule, appointments will be made for both the initial and second doses of the vaccine. The time span between appointments will be dependent on the manufacturer of the vaccine (21 days vs. 28 days). You will receive either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. 
  • Vaccinations will be administered at the clinic at 1601 Esplanade, at the corner of Sixth Avenue and The Esplanade, across the street from the hospital.
  • The vaccination clinic is open 7 days a week, 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. (except holidays).
  • Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for your scheduled appointment due to limited waiting space. 
  • Your Wildcat ID card will be required as evidence of your employment with Chico State.
  • Wear a short-sleeve shirt, if possible, and do not attend the clinic if you are feeling unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Please only call the appointment phone number when you are ready to schedule. For general vaccine questions, please visit Butte County's COVID-19 Vaccine website or Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 Vaccine website. Other questions about COVID-19 should be directed to the campus' COVID-19 Hotline at 530-898-2222.

Vaccination appointments can be scheduled during an employee's work schedule, however time away from work should be coordinated with your appropriate administrator. If additional time off is required due to post-vaccine side effects, employees will need to utilize available leave credits for the additional time away in accordance with the applicable bargaining unit agreement.

Student employees, all other students, and emeritus and retired faculty and staff are not yet part of BCPH's vaccination allocation for Chico State. The University is working to include student employees who are working on campus in the vaccine allocation as soon as possible, but students and others in Butte County may also currently be able to receive a vaccine directly from the county by registering on Butte County's COVID-19 Vaccine website. Community members elsewhere should refer to their local public health agency for information.

All vaccine allocation prioritization statewide is based on the State of California COVID Vaccination Prioritization Tier(opens in new window), which in turn, is based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices Guidance(opens in new window)
