Immunizations and Health Insurance

Students enrolled in programs that require proof of immunization will be contacted via email to initiate the immunization process. Students should not initiate the process prior to receiving this email as it contains personalized information from our immunization service.

MCPHS works with CastleBranch, a confidential health information service, to track student immunization records and compliance. Please regularly check your email for an invitation to register with CastleBranch. You will be provided with specific immunization requirements and the appropriate immunization form by CastleBranch. There is a one-time fee of $25 to open your account.

If you have any questions about this process, please email immunization@mcphs.edu.

Please note: Your package code is unique to your program and will reflect the physical MCPHS University campus to which your program is accredited (Boston, Worcester, or Manchester, as appropriate).

Health Insurance

Students enrolled in an online degree program at MCPHS are not required to have health insurance while enrolled as an online student at MCPHS University. Additionally, online students do not need to submit proof of health insurance or a waiver while they are enrolled since online students are not automatically registered or billed for University health insurance.
