New, transfer students: Got your shots?
College students are required by state law to have certain immunizations before coming to school. Proof of immunization must be submitted online before the end of the Add/Drop period. Here's how...
Get vaccinated against meningitis
UMass and the Five Colleges remain in an "outbreak" status following three confirmed cases of meningococcal B between October, 2017 and February, 2018. According to state and federal health officials, this designation extends for one year after the last case was diagnosed.
It remains vitally important that UMass students continue getting vaccinated through the spring and summer. The two-shot Bexsero meningitis B series is available at UHS now through summer intersession. Call (413) 577-5101 for an appointment.
For more information, go to www.umass.edu/meningitis. If you have questions, call the UHS Triage Advice Nurse, (413) 577-5228.
