COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Plan your vaccine:

A high vaccination rate in Harvard’s community, particularly among students, will be critical to the University’s plan for a return to full in-person learning, research and other activities in the fall. Everyone should take time to plan your vaccine, know what your options are for receiving vaccine, and seek all options available to you.

We are pleased to announce that HUHS will hold COVID vaccine clinics beginning on Friday, May 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Murr Center. Vaccine appointments are open to all students, staff, faculty, researchers, and HUHS patients and can be scheduled through the HUHS patient portal with your Harvard Key.  Additional information including instructions on how to schedule an appointment, dates and times for future vaccine clinics, and FAQs can be found on the HUHS vaccine webpage.

As announced on May 5, to reach the high levels of vaccination needed to protect our community, Harvard will require COVID vaccination for all students who will be on campus this fall. Read the full message (5/5/21) on the vaccine requirement and planning for the Harvard community.

After you get vaccinated, please remember to send a copy of your completed vaccination card to HUHS at mrecords@huhs.harvard.edu. Harvard Microsoft 365 users can send securely using message encryption in Outlook, and all users with Harvard Key can send securely using Accellion Kiteworks. We keep this information secure and confidential.

Be prepared

Plan for your vaccine

Already received the vaccine?

Keep your vaccination card safe and make a copy for your files. You never know when that card might be required in the future (for in person participation in activities, international travel, etc.)

If you have been vaccinated outside of HUHS, please submit a copy of your CDC card at mrecords@huhs.harvard.edu. Harvard Microsoft 365 users can send securely using message encryption in Outlook, and all users with Harvard Key can send securely using Accellion Kiteworks. We keep this information secure and confidential. Sharing that you have been vaccinated with HUHS helps us to estimate the number of doses we will need as supplies increase. It will also help us understand the level of protection in our community, so we can make decisions about future policies and protocols.

Policies for fully vaccinated individuals
