The Influenza Vaccination is no longer required for all college students under the age of 30 for the Spring 2021 semester.
As of January 15, 2021, the Massachusetts Department of Health has stated:
“Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19. “
Though no longer required by the Commonwealth, Merrimack strongly urges students to get a flu shot before coming to campus. Students no longer need to forward proof of getting a flu vaccine.
Will Merrimack be offering flu clinics?
Merrimack has already offered on-campus flu clinics in Sept. and October. If Merrimack plans to offer additional flu clinics, we will notify students by email and post information on this page.
