Dear Northeastern University Community,

Northeastern has announced that all faculty and staff who work at one of Northeastern University’s U.S. campuses, and all students attending or visiting a U.S. campus, are required to receive a booster shot by January 18, 2022, or seven days after they become eligible. As we monitor the Omicron variant and see cases rise, vaccination is critical to protect our community.

Documenting Your Booster Shot

Please use the Vaccine Verification form to upload documentation of your booster shot. This documentation is due by January 18, 2022, or seven days after you become eligible. All new hires will be expected to submit proof of vaccination, including the booster, or apply for medical or religious exemption and provide supporting documentation within their first 30 days of employment.

Accessing a Booster Shot

You can find additional information on booster shots here for Massachusetts,
California, Washington, Maine, North Carolina, Virginia, British Columbia, Ontario, and the United Kingdom. Although booster shots are not required on our U.K. and Canadian campuses, we strongly encourage faculty, staff and students to get one as soon as they are eligible to do so.

Additional Information

You can find additional information in the Vaccine FAQs or email with other questions.

Thank you for following this crucial health and safety requirement as soon as possible to help us plan for a safe and healthy spring term.
