The Massachusetts code of regulations requires that all students enrolled at Berklee’s campus in Boston provide documentation that they have been immunized against the following before attending class:
- measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR);
- tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap);
- hepatitis B; and
- meningococcal disease (all newly enrolled full-time students 21 years of age and younger must have received a dose of quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine (MenACWY) on or after their 16th birthday).

Immunization (Vaccine) Information for Entering and Transfer Students
- For students entering in the spring 2019 semester, the due date to submit your immunization requirements is December 1, 2018.
All students must submit a completed immunization form to the Health and Wellness Department. Students should make sure they have received the required vaccines; it takes only one missing or expired dose to cause delays during check-in. Please note that you cannot attend Berklee College of Music until the immunization requirements are met.
Links to immunization forms are below.
Immunization forms may be sent to:
Berklee College of Music
Health and Wellness Department
1140 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215-3693, U.S.
Students who have previously attended a summer program at Berklee College of Music or Boston Conservatory at Berklee and who are entering in the fall 2018 semester or spring 2019 semester must submit new immunization documentation.
We understand that, due to the multiple doses required, students may not have fulfilled all immunization requirements by the deadline for their entering semester, listed in the box above. Students should submit documentation of what immunizations have been completed by the deadline for their entering semester, as listed above. As students continue to complete their immunization requirements, they should submit their updated documents to Health and Wellness for a more efficient check-in process.
If students have submitted their documentation but are still receiving communications indicating otherwise, students should contact Health and Wellness immediately at 617-747-2310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Detailed information about medical and religious exemptions, as well as the meningococcal waiver, may be found on the immunization form.
All religious and medical exemptions must be renewed annually.
