Immunization Requirements

New York State Department of Health requires that all students must comply with specific immunization laws. Please read the following to select the criteria that you are mandated to comply with prior to registration. You are blocked from registration until these requirements are met.

NYS Health Law 2165, in effect since July, 1989, requires that students born after 1956 submit to Health Services, room N303, documented proof of measles, mumps, and rubella immunization or immunity. Please refer to the information you received in your admissions packet or see immunizations requirements for for detailed options that will allow you to select which one completes your requirements.

Free MMR (combination measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccines are offered by Health Services through the semester as well as during registration.

Medical or religious exceptions may apply with proper documentation. Pregnant women must select the blood titre option only.

NYS Health Law 2167, in effect since August, 2003, requires that all students, those born after 1956 and those born prior to 1957, receive and read the information on Meningitis, specifically Meningococcal Disease. You must fill out and sign the response form by either selecting to waive your right to the Meningitis vaccine or taking the form to your doctor, receive the vaccine and sign. These response forms must be submitted to Health Services, room N303. Please refer to the information you received in your admissions packet or see immunizations requirements for details.

There are no exceptions with this law since waiving your rights to vaccine is an option.

No Meningitis vaccines are offered by our office.

You are welcome to print the forms from the website and are also welcome to fax your completed forms to Health Services at 212-220-2367. If you choose to fax, please follow up with a phone call to insure receipt and to insure that all is complete. Our number is 212-220- 8255.
