New Student Immunization Requirements
There is a change in student immunization requirements effective Fall 2004. Health Services is implementing NYS legislation which requires all college students to provide proof of immunization for meningitis or sign a waiver refusing the immunization.
Registration and Records and the DCC Registration and Financial Services will collaborate with Health Services to promote student compliance by offering the meningitis information and declination form through their offices. The form can also be obtained through the Counseling and Advising Center. The form is also available online through the Health Services website (go to meningitis). Students will be required to complete the requirement in order to register for future semesters. Students will be placed on “Hold” status and will be unable to register for future semesters until the requirement is completed.
