PROTECT YOURSELF, PROVIDE FOR OTHERS

UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla has pledged to provide $50K to the Basic Needs Hub—in support of food security, housing resources, and financial wellness—if 10K students receive their COVID-19 booster by the end of 2021. You can support the health and well-being of all Tritons by getting your booster and helping us reach our goal.
