Immunization Requirements

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);
  • varicella;
  • hepatitis B; and
  • meningococcal disease (for students living in the on-campus residence halls).

Immunization (Vaccine) Information for Entering and Transfer Students

  • For students entering in the summer 2018 semester, your immunization form is due by April 15, 2018.  For students entering in the fall 2018 semester, your immunization form is due by August 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 may be found below:

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. Detailed information about medical and religious exemptions, as well as the meningococcal waiver, may be found on the immunization form.  

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 immunizations@berklee.edu.
