Immunization requirements imposed by New York State Public Health Law 2165 in 1990, requires all students born on or after January 1, 1957, to produce, at registration, proof of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). This requirement pertains to all full-time and part-time students taking 6 or more credits. Those born before January 1, 1957, are exempt from this requirement. Students who have no record of immunizations should contact College Health Services. The Proof of Immunization Form can be downloaded and printed by clicking here.
In July 2003, Governor Pataki signed New York State Public Health Law 2167 for meningitis requirements requiring institutions, including colleges and universities, to distribute information about meningococcal disease and vaccination to all students. Even though the Meningitis vaccine is not mandated at this time, colleges are required to maintain a reply form from the students stating that they have read the information and either received the vaccine or declined.
