There are 6 comments on Phase 2 of COVID Vaccines Is Here: What It Means for BU, and You

  1. Hi,what is BU doing about people who get bad side effects after getting the vaccine that they can’t work are we going to use our sick leave or would BU give us a couple days off with pay so you won’t have to use our sick leave these vaccine work differently with everyone ?

  2. Thanks for the information and update.

    Who will get the vaccine?
    “That will be on a first-come, first-served basis, which is why it’s so important that people monitor their email regularly.”

    Students who are non-compliant should not be entitled to the vaccine; they should be flagged and given the vaccine after students who have followed the rules. It’s been a year. This is no longer “unprecedented.” We know the rules. We know the situation. No more excuses.

  3. So once everyone who wants a vaccine is vaccinated will the university force the remaining students to receive the vaccine because i can already see where this is going?

      1. For now… just wait once everyone who wants it has taken it they will turn their heads and scream “hey YOU have to take it now!”. Just wait and see. I am scared to take a vaccine that was developed like 5x faster than any vaccine in history

  4. I’m still unclear when reading this. Should students also register through the state of Massachusetts or strictly take the student survey. It sounds like students are encouraged to do both but keep BU posted if they get the vaccine elsewhere?

    Thanks for the clarification.
