Is there a COVID-19 Vaccination requirement?
The MassBay COVID-19 vaccination requirement was lifted on Monday, May 15, 2023. Students and employees no longer need to provide proof of vaccination as a condition of entry, participation, or enrollment. Certain groups of students and employees may continue to have COVID-19 vaccination requirements as a condition of their clinical or external placements.
Although COVID-19 vaccinations are no longer required, MassBay strongly encourages all members of our community to stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations. According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying from the virus. As with other vaccine-preventable diseases, you are protected best from COVID-19 when you stay up to date with the recommended vaccinations, including recommended boosters.
