Keeping Our Community Healthy

Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked methodically on plans to bring students to campus in the safest, most enriching way possible, while effectively protecting the safety of community members and keeping our infection rate low. In accordance with guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH), we have developed a comprehensive health and safety campaign to keep all members of our community healthy. This campaign will continue to adapt based on updated guidance and learnings from our undergraduate population. This page will be updated with the latest information as we approach summer 2022.

Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination is required for students participating in a summer program.

The vaccines approved for emergency use in the United States and abroad have proven effective in reducing the spread and severity of COVID-19, and are becoming more accessible each day. Children ages 5 and older are eligible for vaccination in the United States and many countries around the world. In addition, the Massachusetts Higher Education Testing Group recommends that all institutions strive to get their campuses as close to a 100 percent vaccination rate as possible. 

If you are in the United States and have questions about how to sign up to get vaccinated, you can learn more at cdc.gov or mass.gov/covid-19-vaccine. You may also find it useful to visit sites such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and local medical/community health centers to sign up for vaccine appointments as they become available. For students outside the United States, you can learn more from the WHO's COVID-19 resource area.
