The State of Massachusetts requires that students attending college in the Commonwealth submit the required vaccinations and provide proper documentation. All forms must be completed, uploaded and entered into the Health Services Portal (see instructions below).
The deadline for submission is Monday, June 27th for Fall enrollment (January 1st/Spring enrollment). If all forms have not been uploaded and entered into the Health Services Portal within 30 days before the start of classes you will not be able to register for the following semester classes and may not be able to move onto campus.
Health Services does not require a physical exam, but the form should be signed by your healthcare provider. An electronic signature is acceptable.
The Emmanuel College Immunization & Health Form details which vaccines are required by the State of Massachusetts and those that are highly recommended by Health Services. Please note that for the ‘Immunization Requirements’ portion of the form you can substitute an official record from your healthcare provider. Please make sure that your documentation includes all of the required vaccines listed or positive titers where applicable as well as the completed Health History and TB Questionnaire. If you have not received all of the required vaccines you will need to obtain them prior to coming to campus. Health Services does not stock the state-required vaccines.
Also, please upload copies of both the front and back of your medical insurance card. We suggest students keep a picture of their insurance card in their phone.
TO SUBMIT FORMS THROUGH THE HEALTH SERVICES PORTAL PLEASE FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW:
