Yesterday, as it was announcing that students and staff had to get booster shots by next month, Northeastern University was canceling a two-day on-campus vaccination clinic next week after information from people signing up somehow wound up on the provider's Web site.
The information that was temporarily available on the site does not include social security numbers or medical or financial information, and is limited to what you have submitted, including name, date of birth and address and any health insurance information. At this time, it is not known if your data was improperly accessed or viewed by anyone outside of Pelmeds or Northeastern. We are working with Pelmeds to understand more about the extent of the incident, and will share additional information as soon as it becomes available.
The university added that anybody who had signed up should now find someplace else to get a shot.
