All BPS staff will adhere to the announced vaccine policy for City of Boston employees. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 5+ receive a COVID-19 vaccine, and get a booster shot when eligible. Vaccines are one of the most important tools we have to protect ourselves and each other from COVID-19. However, vaccination rates in specific city neighborhoods and among youth ages 5-15 remain below the City of Boston average. For more information, please visit boston.gov/covid19-vaccine.
