There have been recent outbreaks of measles, mumps, and rubella on college campuses. These diseases are highly contagious, and can present serious health problems. With proper immunizations, these diseases can be controlled. New York State Public Health Law Sections 2165 and 2167 and NYC regulation 10 NYCRR Section 66-1.3 (b) mandate measles, mumps, and rubella immunizations for college students. Students who fail to provide such documentation may not register for classes.
For detailed information on the NYS Public Health Laws 2165 and 2167, please visit the NYS Department of Health website. You can also find out more about NYS Public Health Law 2164 and Adult Immunization.
