New state immunization requirements

Massachusetts has established new immunization requirements for students entering college as of fall 2014. All incoming freshmen and Health Science students are now required to have two doses of chicken pox (Varicella) vaccine, two doses of measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine, three doses of hepatitis B vaccine (HepB) and one dose of tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine.

Immunization Forms

Immunization forms must be completed and received in Student Health Services prior to the start of classes! Failure to do so will result in an immunization hold inhibiting grade accessibility and final transcript requests. The immunization hold will remain on the student account until all the required documentation is submitted to Student Health Services.

College immunization requirements apply to:

1) All full-time students (12 credits or more) matriculating into a credit or clock hour program.

2) All full-time and part-time Health Professions students.

3) All full-time and part-time students on a student or other visa, including foreign students attending or visiting classes as part of a formal academic visitation exchange program.
