Vaccine Distribution—Phase Two

*This message was sent to the Northeastern community on 1/20/21
We continue to receive COVID-19 vaccine doses from the state Department of Public Health and will offer them to members of our campus community as soon as new doses arrive. We strongly encourage all members of the community to get vaccinated—the critical next step in overcoming Covid-19. If you work elsewhere – for example at a hospital or clinic that is offering you the vaccine – we encourage you to get vaccinated there as soon as possible.

As students move onto Northeastern’s Boston campus this spring, many cited the university’s robust testing and contact tracing protocols as big factors in their decision to return. “It’s good to be back,” said Chris Chefalas, a first-year student who participated in the university’s N.U.in Boston program in the fall. “Going from a king-size bed to a twin will be rough, but it’s nice to be close to classes—and the dining halls.”
