New York State Public Health Law (PHL) 2165 (1b and Title 10 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations Subpart 66-2 (10 NYCRR Subpart 66-2) mandates that all incoming students, whether full time or part time, born on or after December 31, 1956, must be immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) and requires proof of immunity as a requirement for attendance. City College reserves the right to prevent the registration of any applicant who fails to provide a record of immunization or who, otherwise, provides a health risk to the College community.
New York State passed Public Health Law 2167, addressing meningococcal meningitis. In compliance with PHL 2167, all New York State students, regardless of how many credits they take in college, must fill out a Meningococcal Meningitis Response form. Students may download both forms from the Student Health Services website:
