Why is QCC not mandating vaccinations? What are the CDC guidelines?

  • Considerations for the Fall 2021 semester continue to develop and are subject to change
  • The 15 Massachusetts community colleges are not mandating COVID-19 vaccines  for students, faculty, or staff at this time
  • It is essential to meet the needs of all of our students
    • They are often from the communities hit hardest by this pandemic
    • They face disproportionate access to the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Creating additional barriers for our students would go against our critically important mission of open access for all.

We will continue to encourage our college community to get vaccinated. Read the Statement from community college presidents to lean more.
