New York Public Health Law, Article 21, requires that all college students born after January 1, 1957 and enrolled in six (6) or more credits in a semester, demonstrate proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. Proof of immunity consists of:
•Measles: two doses of live measles vaccine administered on or after the student's first birthday, physician documentation of measles disease or blood titer showing immunity
•Mumps: one dose of live mumps vaccine administered on or after the student's first birthday, physician documentation of mumps disease or blood titer showing immunity
•Rubella: one dose of live rubella vaccine administered on or after the student's first birthday or blood titer showing immunity. A physician's diagnosis is not acceptable.
Meningococcal Information Acknowledgement: New York Public Health Law, Article 21, requires that all college students that are enrolled in six (6) or more credits in a semester receive and acknowledge information from the college regarding meningococcal disease and vaccination, whether they live on or off campus.
Proof of immunity must be submitted within thirty (30) days from the start of classes. Students should check with their high school health office or health care provider to insure they meet these requirements. Failure to submit proof of immunization can result in prohibition from classes, exclusion from registration or withholding of grades, transcripts and future registration.
Please check for program specific requirements: Nursing, Athletics, Massage Therapy, Wilderness Recreation and Radiologic Technology each have very specific health requirements and submission dates that must be met to participate in the program.
