New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires students born after January 1, 1957 to submit documentation proving immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. The following constitutes proof of immunity: two doses of Measles vaccine and one each of Mumps and Rubella or blood test results showing immunity to each disease. Students must comply in order to attend classes. Students also must submit a Meningococcal Meningitis Immunization Form signed by the student, or if under the age of eighteen, the student’s parent or guardian, to the Office of Health Services within thirty days from the beginning of the semester. This form acknowledges the mandatory receipt of information regarding Meningococcal disease and vaccination. Vaccination is not required. Students who fail to return this form may not be allowed to attend classes.
