On April 19, 2021, the commonwealth of Massachusetts expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccination to anyone living or studying in Massachusetts who is age 16 or over.
For the fall 2021 semester, we expect all members of the Mount Holyoke campus community to be vaccinated and we will require students to be vaccinated before returning to campus. This will greatly reduce the risk of infection for all. We expect there will be very limited exceptions and will be working to set up structures to ensure compliance and to vaccinate those students who are unable to be vaccinated before returning to campus.
We encourage all members of our community to receive any of the approved vaccines available where you reside as soon as you can.
For more information about how to schedule a vaccine appointment, where to get vaccine doses, traveling to get the vaccine and other questions, please visit the vaccine information page of the Health and Safety section of our Opening the Gates website.
