Per the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, all College students living and taking classes on campus are now required to receive the flu vaccine.
The new vaccine requirement is an important step to reduce flu-related illness and the overall impact of respiratory illness during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students will be expected to have received a flu vaccine by December 31, 2020 for the 2020-2021 influenza season, unless either a medical or religious exemption is provided. If you are currently a remote student and planning to return to campus in the spring you will need to get vaccinated through your own medical provider before returning to campus.
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.
