Important Update Influenza vaccination
On January 15, 2021 the Massachusetts Department of Public Health removed the requirement for all students to receive influenza vaccination.This is in part due to this year to date being a mild flu season. Although no longer required, annual Influenza vaccination continues to be strongly recommended for all students and employees at the University. Health Services has influenza vaccine available for all students and employees, with no appointment required.
