Recommended immunizations include:

  • Tuberculosis (TB) Screening.

 Every new student must submit a completed Health Report. The enrollment process is not complete until this document is on file. The immunization requirements are enforced in accordance with the Massachusetts College Immunization Law. If you are a freshman or transfer student please make sure to submit a copy of the Health Report Form to Health Services prior to the start of classes. Failure to do so will result in a delay in class registration.

Documentation

Documentation must be signed by a health care provider and must include exact dates for all immunizations. If serology is done, please attach a copy of the report. Requests for medical exemptions may be granted if there is documentation from a health care provider stating the reason(s) that these vaccines are contraindicated. Requests for religious exemptions may be granted in accordance with Massachusetts state law governing immunizations. In the event there is an outbreak of any of these vaccine-preventable diseases, students who have been granted exemptions will be required to leave campus and will return when the period of communicability has passed.
