Brandeis requires all new and returning students, as well as faculty, staff and affiliates to be fully vaccinated. For more information, please see the Student Vaccination Guidelines and FAQs or the faculty and staff guidance and FAQs about the requirement. Specific questions may be directed to email@example.com.
How to get a vaccine
- The state of Massachusetts has a tool that enables you to select the type of site and the type of vaccine you would like to receive.
- Local pharmacies, such as the CVS at 800 Lexington St. in Waltham, are offering vaccines. Many pharmacies are now also accepting walk-ins.
After You’ve Been Vaccinated
Masks must still be worn by all individuals in indoor public areas such as the Shapiro Campus Center, the Library, Gosman and dining halls (except while eating or drinking).
Vaccinated staff and faculty who upload proof of vaccination (a photo of their vaccination card) to the Vaccines tab in the Campus Passport, will be able to test for COVID only once per week. Staff and faculty who have not uploaded proof of vaccination, or who have received an exemption from the vaccine requirements, must test twice per week (every 96 hours).
Updating your passport with your vaccinated status
Once you have received both of your shots (Moderna/Pfizer) or your single Johnson & Johnson shot, open your Campus Passport and click on Vaccines in the middle of the Main Menu. You will see a link to click to update your COVID-19 vaccination status by uploading a picture of your completed vaccination card. This will be reviewed by a Brandeis medical provider.
Please make sure to update your vaccination status in the Passport Portal as described above to take advantage of this option. If you are fully vaccinated, when you answer the Daily Health Assessment after travel, select the second option “MET REQUIREMENTS”.
Brandeis is publicly reporting the percentage of our community that is vaccinated on our COVID-19 Dashboard.
