COVID-19 Vaccination Information
All Institute students in academic programs scheduled to be on campus are required to comply with the COVID-19 Vaccination policy. To comply, students must either submit their proof of receiving a completed series of a COVID-19 vaccine (both doses of Pfizer or Moderna, single dose of Johnson & Johnson, plus a booster) to vaccinecheck.massgeneralbrigham.org OR have an approved medical or religious exemption.
To comply with this requirement, all Institute students in academic programs scheduled to be on campus are required to submit their proof of COVID-19 vaccination into their Complio account. In addition, students are required to receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. For guidance on how to populate your Complio account, visit the IHP’s Immunization and Certification page.
Students in need of a COVID-19 vaccine can utilize:
- MGB COVID Pass: After completing your daily asymptomatic attestation survey through COVID Pass, students can proceed with scheduling their vaccination appointment at an MGB affiliated location.
- Mass.gov: Students can use the state’s COVID-19 Vaccine Finder to find a convenient vaccination location.
Exemption Request Process
Students seeking an exemption for medical or religious reasons for the COVID-19 vaccine must submit a request using the following processes:
- Medical exemption: those who seek a medical exemption due to medical contraindications (e.g., a previous severe or immediate allergic reaction to a vaccine or the components of a COVID-19) must complete an exemption form and provide documentation from a qualified health care provider that will be subject to review by Occupational Health.
- Religious exemption: those who seek a religious exemption due to sincerely held religious beliefs must complete an exemption form that will be subject to review by Human Resources. Documentation may be required. Email Vanessa Desrochers for guidance on this process.
Important: Both exemption request documents require your PeopleSoft/Employee ID number. Returning students can find this number on the back of your student ID above the barcode. Incoming students without a student ID can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your PeopleSoft/Employee ID number.
