Protect Your Health and Those around You This Season!

This season the flu vaccine is now more important than ever!

The influenza immunization is now REQUIRED in the State of Massachusetts for ALL full-time undergraduate and graduate students under the age of 30. Per the State of MA, you MUST receive your flu vaccine NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 31, 2020.

Please call Health Services at 781-239-6363 to book your appointment as soon as possible and get vaccinated BEFORE you return home for winter break!
