UMass Public Health Promotion Center & Vaccine Clinic Information

The UMass Public Health Promotion Center’s (PHPC) mission is to prevent illness and to promote and protect the health and wellness of the campus community as a Health Promoting University. We provide many of the same services and functions of a local health department in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We serve all members of the campus community and partner with local, regional and state health and human service agencies to provide health and wellness opportunities to the campus. We have academic practice partnerships with the Elaine Marieb College of Nursing and the School of Public Health and Health Sciences to allow for robust campus programing and clinical experiences for students. We partner with Student Affairs and Campus Life and Human Resources in supporting students and employees and collaborate with University Health Services in providing clinical services such as screenings and immunizations.

The FDA recently announced there would be an updated COVID-19 vaccine released in late September based on the COVID-19 variant XBB. Effective 9/11/2023 the FDA ceased permitting the use of bivalent COVID-19 vaccines. The PHPC anticipates offering COVID-19 vaccines when the new formula is available to order.
