Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
We are writing to remind you that all students taking face-to-face classes and in-person employees are required to have received a booster vaccine for COVID-19 by March 1, 2022 or within 14 days of their eligibility for a booster thereafter. Any individual who has not received a booster past this date will be considered out of compliance.
Submitting Proof of Vaccination/Booster
You can email a picture (jpg) or scan (pdf) of your vaccination card to HealthCenter@springfield.edu. Please include your name and Springfield College ID number in your communication. You can also drop off or mail a copy of your vaccination card to the Health Center (Springfield College Health Center, 263 Alden Street, Springfield, MA 01109). Employees may also submit their information via the COVID Attestation form on PrideNET.
