Simmons University COVID Vaccine Information for Students:

Simmons will require all students who are enrolled in classes on our campus to be vaccinated before they arrive on campus in the fall.

This requirement also includes students who participate in face-to-face curricular and co-curricular activities at any of our Boston or remote locations, including all face-to-face classes, immersion weekends, off-site cohorts, and other in-person events at these locations. The requirement does not apply to students in field placements and internships, but those students must comply with all health and safety regulations for the site at which they are placed.

Everyone is encouraged to get their vaccine as soon as possible. Individuals can go to or to find a location near you in Massachusetts

You may upload your vaccination information to the Student Health Portal at

Please contact Simmons University Health Services if you have any questions about the vaccine or any other concerns. We are in the office for limited hours during the summer so please leave a detailed message and we will return your call within 2 business days.
