Proof of Immunizations
New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167 require that all students attending college and universities who were born on or after January 1, 1957 and registered for 6 or more credit hours to submit documentation of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).
Acceptable proof of immunizations:
- Vaccination card from childhood must be stamped or signed by a healthcare provider;
- Immunization records from your doctor's office must be signed or stamped;
- High School or prior college's immunization records;
- Blood test (ORIGINAL LAB REPORT IS REQUIRED) proving immunity to measles, mumps and rubella;
- Certificate of immunization from INS or country of origin for international students; or
- Honorable discharge papers from military service, within 10 years of discharge, pending receipt of shot records.
Meningococcal vaccination form requirement
In addition, students meeting the above criteria must complete the Meningitis Information Response Form. Please note that it is NOT mandatory to get the meningitis shot, but NYS Law requires that each student complete this form and submit it to the Health Office.
Students enrolled in distance learning classes only, and not attending classes on campus, will be exempt from providing immunization records.
The NYS Public Health Law states that a student will not be allowed to remain enrolled should they fail to submit these documents. Students who fail to comply with this law will be administratively withdrawn from the college.
Students are required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination to the College Nurse at firstname.lastname@example.org. SUNY mandates all students to obtain the vaccines and provide the required documentation. Students unvaccinated due to religious or medical reasons must submit the COVID-19 Religious Exemption Form or COVID-19 Medical Exemption Form to the Health Office (Moore 141M) or email@example.com.
