COVID-19 Vaccination – Current Distribution Schedule for Massachusetts

Information on Massachusetts’ COVID-19 vaccination phases can be found on the website.


Vaccination Status of Visiting Program Participants

The population of faculty, students, researchers, and staff come from a variety of geographic locations with varying degrees of vaccine distribution. In order for the MBL to resume programmatic activities as safely as possible for the entire population of participants visiting the MBL campus, all non-fully vaccinated Education and Research program participants visiting the MBL and living in MBL housing facilities for a program this summer will be required to participate in the MBL’s Testing Program.

In order to be exempt from the MBL’s mandatory testing program, individuals living in MBL-owned housing can provide their proof of full vaccination at registration upon arrival to campus.

Any vaccinated participants with proof of full vaccination who are identified by the MBL Contact Tracing Program as a close contact may not be required to quarantine per CDC guidelines.

As the vaccination programs continue to move forward, the MBL will assess its Testing Program requirements.
