Immunization Policy



All students enrolled in a New York State College must be in compliance with New York State Public Health Law 2165. Failure to meet these requirements may result in cancellation of registration.

All students taking six (6) or more credits per semester must submit the following proof of immunizations:
  • Measles

    Two doses of live measles vaccine. The first dose must have been received no more than 4 days prior to the student's first birthday and the second dose no less than 28 days after the first dose.
  • The first dose must have been received on or after January 1, 1968.  Immunization prior to January 1, 1968 will be accepted if the Health Care Provider certifies a live vaccine was used.  Physician documentation of disease, or serologic evidence of immunity will be accepted.
  • Rubella

    One dose of live rubella vaccine administerd no more than four days prior to the student's first birthday and  must be given on/or after January 1, 1969.  Serologic evidence of immunity will be accepted.  Physician documented disease is not accepted.
  • Mumps

    One dose of live mumps vaccine administered no more than four days prior to the student's first birthday and must be given on/or after January 1, 1969.  Physician documentation of disease, or serologic evidence of immunity will be accepted.
  • Meningitis

    New York State Public Health Law 2167 requires colleges and universities to distribute information about meningococcal disease and vaccination to all students. All students must complete a meningitis response form indicating when they were vaccinated or if they are declining to be vaccinated. Either is acceptable.

In addition to the measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations, the American College Health Association (ACHA) strongly recommends that students be vaccinated against tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria, polio, varicella, hepatitis B, and meningitis. At this time, law does not mandate them.

Students who are transferring  from another New York State College may have their immunization records faxed directly to the Student Health Center at (315) 792-3700. To avoid delays please contact the Student Health Center at the college you are transferring from as soon as possible.
The deadline for submitting the immunization record is 14 days from the start of classes, both for the Fall and Spring semesters. Failure to provide immunizations after that date will result in cancellation of your registration.
Please mail or fax records.
