COVID-19 Vaccine & Booster Information

Vaccines and boosters are the best defense against severe illness from COVID-19, and are critical components of the University’s multi-layered health and safety measures. Staying up-to-date with current COVID-19 vaccinations help protect our community from severe illness, hospitalizations, and enable in-person learning, research, and other activities that are critical to the University’s teaching and learning mission.

Harvard requires all students to be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations including the bivalent Omicron-specific COVID-19 booster. Students who are not up-to-date on their COVID vaccine, or other required vaccinations, will have a hold placed on their enrollment. For Harvard paid-employees, Harvard highly recommends being up-to-date with your COVID vaccinations per CDC definition. Harvard will continue to require and monitor compliance with primary series vaccinations. Documentation can be uploaded via the HUHS Patient Portal.

Below is information about how to schedule a COVID vaccine. Individuals should also visit HUHS for guidance on how to verify their vaccine and booster. For additional details on the vaccination policy, visit HUHS’ vaccine requirement FAQs page.

“Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your friends and family, and your colleagues.”

Dr. Giang Nguyen, Executive Director of Harvard University Health Services
