Campus-wide vaccination and boosters are the best defense against severe illness from COVID-19. Combined with masking and regular viral testing, a high vaccination rate and booster rate in Harvard’s community are critical components of the University’s multi-layered health and safety measures. These measures will help protect our community and enable us to return to as much in-person learning, research, and activity as possible.

The deadline to receive and verify your COVID-19 booster is January 31. If you’re not yet eligible to receive your booster, your deadline to receive and verify your booster will be 30 days after you become eligible.
Schedule your booster
If you’re unable to get a booster before you return to campus, you will not be barred from entering campus. You will, however, be expected to arrange for the booster as soon as possible. If you received your primary vaccine series outside the United States, you should seek a booster with any WHO-approved vaccine that is available to you (mixing of brands is acceptable). HUHS is hosting booster clinics in the coming weeks. See the scheduling options.
Verify your booster
See the step-by-step guidance to verify your booster through the HUHS Patient Portal.
If you have an approved exemption for the vaccine, you don’t need to submit additional documentation for a booster exemption.
