Required Immunizations

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Department of Public Health requires all students to provide documentation of immunizations, recent physical exam (within the past 12 months), and completed health forms. The immunization requirements are mandated by Massachusetts regulation 105 CMR 220.000. The regulation applies to all full-time undergraduate and graduate students and students in a health services field (patient contact)..
 
Health forms must be completed by you and your health care provider and returned to Health Services by August 1 for all accepted students who will be starting classes in the fall and by January 1 for all accepted students who will be starting classes in the spring.  Students must be compliant with all health requirements PRIOR to entrance, or they may not be permitted to move into residence halls or begin classes.

Current Immunization Requirements

For students who graduated from a high school in Massachusetts, they should have had already had all of the required vaccinations except the one for Meningitis ACWY. Out-of-state students should review their records carefully, as frequently there are fewer requirements outside of Massachusetts. Students should bring their forms to their health care provider for review and schedule any needed immunizations as soon as possible.
