Stonehill College has taken a number of precautionary measures to prevent the spread and impact of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The College continues to closely monitor the disease as it evolves and is following guidelines issued by federal and state experts.
Health and Safety Information
Vaccination provides the best protection against COVID-19 and provides the best chance for us to return to the daily activities that are important in a college community. The College requires that all employees are “up to date” with their COVID-19 vaccinations, with a primary series of COVID-19 vaccination as well as a booster dose.
The College requires employees and students to obtain a booster shot if they are eligible. Booster shot eligibility information can be found on the CDC's website here. Recently, COVID-19 medical news released a new booster option that is designed to address the BA.4 and BA.5 variants.
You can book an appointment with Employee Health and Wellness Coordinator, Monique Avila to obtain the initial series or booster vaccine by clicking HERE (add MS Booking)
You are eligible if you completed a two-dose vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, etc.) five or more months ago or received a Johnson & Johnson/Janssen single-dose vaccine two or more months ago.
Booster Vaccine after COVID: For anyone who has tested positive and had not already received a COVID vaccine booster, we ask that you schedule a booster dose within 30 days of your positive test if possible.

Employees: Please use this form for updating your vaccination documentation.
Medical or Religious Exemptions
If a qualified exemption has precluded you from vaccination in the past, please discuss with your medical or spiritual advisor if vaccination is right for you at this time.
- If you have already received an exemption from last year, you do not have to re-apply for an exemption.
- If you are a new employee, you are eligible to apply for an exemption. New employees should contact Employee Health and Wellness at x1608.
- The College has received several inquiries from members of the community who are Catholic concerning the Covid-19 vaccines. Both the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (in conjunction with the Pontifical Academy for Life) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have stated that there is no moral objection preventing anyone from receiving a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Please call 508-565-1608 if you have any questions.
