Boston’s Vaccine Passport Mandate Starts This Week

January 10, 2022

Boston mayor Michelle Wu’s vaccine mandate for working for the city of Boston and even for entering indoor establishments is scheduled to go into effect Saturday, January 15.

Under the rule, people ages 12 and up must show proof that they have at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine to enter restaurants, bars, nightclubs, fitness facilities, and entertainment venues in the city. That’s in addition to the city’s indoor mask mandate.

On February 15, the vaccine passport will become more strict, requiring at least two doses of the vaccine to enter those kinds of facilities.

“This step will help increase our vaccination numbers, which we know is the best way to keep our community safe and thriving,” Wu said when announcing the rule change on December 20, 2021. “Although Boston’s vaccination rates have been high, we continue to see serious disparities by race and by age, allowing Omicron and other new variants to spread in our communities. Vaccines are the most powerful tool in fighting this pandemic, once again, and they’re the most powerful tool to allow us to recover as a city and to truly be together.”
