    Immunizations Information

    Immunization Form

    Meningitis Form

    Monroe College maintains compliance with New York State Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167.

    New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires students enrolled in an in-state college to provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). Students born prior to January 1, 1957 are exempt from this requirement.

    New York State Public Health Law 2167 requires all post-secondary institutions to distribute information about meningococcal meningitis and meningitis immunization to all students. Meningitis is rare. However, when it strikes, its flu-like symptoms make diagnosis difficult. If not treated early, meningitis can lead to swelling of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal column as well as severe and permanent disabilities, such as hearing loss, brain damage, seizures, limb amputation and even death.

    Meningitis can easily spread from person-to-person by coughing, sharing beverages or eating utensils, kissing, or spending time in close contact with someone who is sick or who carries the bacteria.  People can spread the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease even before they know they are sick.

    Cases of meningitis among teens and young adults 15-24 years of age (the age of most college students) have more than doubled since 1991. The disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year and claims about 300 lives. Between 100 and 125 meningitis cases on college campuses and as many as 15 students will die from the disease. 

    We encourage anyone needing any of these vaccinations to contact us for assistance. We can help direct you to a local healthcare provider, where they can be obtained. Some may be available at no charge through the local health department or through the insurance carrier.

    Students who are not compliant with these laws after 30 days will not be able to attend class until they are complaint.
