Immunizations, Vaccinations and Registration Holds
Minnesota law requires all college students to follow vaccination requirements. Failing to follow these requirements can result in a registration hold.
See how Boynton can help you clear your registration hold for immunization requirements.

Boynton Health requires patients to have health insurance coverage. We accept most insurance plans. Check with your health insurance provider to see if Boynton is in their provider network.
