Boston University requiring all students to be vaccinated before fall semester

BOSTON — Boston University’s president announced Friday that all students enrolled in classes will be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine before the fall 2021 semester begins.

This followed Northeastern University’s similar announcement on Tuesday.

In the letter from Boston University President Robert A. Brown, he stated that every student is required to upload documentation as soon as they have completed their vaccination.

“I encourage all our students to get the vaccine as soon as possible,” the letter stated. “The University also will make every effort to vaccinate students if they arrive on campus without vaccination in the fall.”

The letter goes on to state that wearing masks may still be required, and the school will follow all guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
