Flu Shot Required for Students

Starting in Fall 2020, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Boston University are requiring that students receive an influenza vaccine (flu shot). The vaccine requirement is an important step to reduce flu-related and other respiratory illness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The flu shot requirement applies to*:

  • All full-time undergraduate and graduate students under 30 years of age

  • All full- and part-time clinical and health science students

*The flu shot requirement is for students in BU’s Learn from Anywhere (LfA) Testing Categories 1, 2, and 3.
