2022-2023 Vaccine Requirement

In preparation for the 2022-2023 academic year, all students, faculty, and staff who will live, learn, and work on the Weston campus, Regis College Dental Center, and/or Regis North or who will participate in Regis in-person activities are required to be up to date regarding their COVID-19 vaccination status and provide proof of vaccination by Sunday, July 31, 2022.

  • Individuals eligible for the COVID-19 booster must have received it in order to be considered up-to-date.
  • Individuals who have already provided proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination status for the 2021-2022 academic year do not need to re-upload proof of vaccination.
  • Information about medical and religious exemptions will be made available in the coming weeks. Requests for medical exemptions must be resubmitted on an annual basis. Requests for religious exemptions only need to be submitted once.

Failure to comply with the COVID-19 vaccine requirement and/or to provide the corresponding proof of vaccination without an approved exemption may result in restriction from campus spaces and Moodle, inability to register for future courses, removal from current courses, and/or employment related consequences.

Booster Requirement and Eligibility

Regis College students, faculty, and staff eligible to get a COVID-19 booster are required to have one to live, learn, and work on campus this semester. Those who have an approved vaccine exemption from the university are also exempt from the booster.

Please upload booster documentation to CoVerified by clicking on the “+” icon on the home screen and selecting “Upload Vaccine Record.”

You are eligible if you:

  • Are 12 years old or over
  • Are fully vaccinated
  • It has been more than five months since a second Pfizer vaccine
  • It has been more than five months since a second Moderna vaccine
  • It has been more than two months since a Johnson and Johnson vaccine

You may not be eligible to get the booster at this time if you:

  • Are not passed the above timeline for your previous vaccines
  • Have an approved vaccine exemption from Regis College

If you have a question related to your specific booster timeline or eligibility, please email covid19@regiscollege.edu.

Data clearly shows the booster is the best possible defense from hospitalization or serious illness as a result of COVID-19. Additionally, based on the CDC’s new quarantine and isolation recommendations, getting a booster means you will not have to quarantine if you are a close contact to someone who tests positive for COVID-19.

Event Policy

  • All are welcome to attend Regis events on campus.
  • Masking is optional and masks will be available onsite for your convenience.
  • Guests should be prepared to provide:
    • Proof of full vaccination OR
    • A negative result from a PCR test collected within 72 hours prior to the event OR
    • A negative result from an antigen test taken the day of the event, prior to arriving on campus.
