Babson faculty and staff members authorized to work on our campuses or any other property owned or controlled by the College are required to verify that they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, or have received a medical accommodation or religious exemption.
COVID-19 vaccine boosters are required for all eligible Babson College community members. Students, faculty and staff participating in on-campus activities must provide vaccination information by February 1 or within 21 days of becoming eligible for a booster (unless previously granted a medical accommodation or religious exemption).
Faculty and staff should upload vaccine and booster data into Workday. For questions related to entering your booster or vaccine information, please email Jennifer Forbes, Director of Benefits, or see Getting Started: Adding Your COVID-19 Booster Information. Eligible community members who have tested positive for COVID-19 can receive a booster as soon as they are released from isolation and have recovered.
This decision is informed by current public health recommendations, Babson’s surveillance testing trend data, and expert guidance from the College’s external consultants, Environmental Health & Engineering (EHE). Importantly, the latest scientific evidence indicates that boosters provide improved protection against the Omicron variant.
