The following immunizations are required by Massachusetts law for all full-time (9 or more credits) entering undergraduate students including transfer students.

  • Emmanuel no longer requires the COVID-19 vaccine for new students. The College still strongly recommends that students be vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive boosters when eligible.
  • Please note that a physical exam is not required unless you are an athlete. For more information, refer to paperwork from the athletic department.
  • 2 MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines, the first given no earlier than one year after birth and the second at least 1 month after the first, or serology tests (titers) for measles, mumps and rubella that demonstrate immunity
  • 1 Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, pertussis) booster within the past 10 years.
  • Three hepatitis B vaccines or a hepatitis B serology test (titer) that demonstrates immunity.
  • Two varicella (chicken pox) vaccines or a history of varicella verified by your health care provider or a varicella titer that demonstrates immunity
  • A meningitis vaccine or a signed meningitis waiver. Please note that it is necessary to have either the vaccine or a signed waiver in order to receive your room key upon arrival. Signing the waiver as allowed by state regulation does not prevent you from receiving the vaccine at a later date, and in fact, we recommend that you do so.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health strongly suggests TB testing (PPD) for students who are at increased risk for exposure to tuberculosis. Please review the TB Risk Questionnaire. If you have answered "yes" to any of the questions please bring the form to your health care provider for review.
