The mission of Health Services is to provide health education, prevention and health promotion services and activities in response to the changing needs and concerns of our students.
Students are encouraged to visit Health Services for illness assessment, coordination of medical resources, health counseling, health education and community referrals. Health Services is a source of confidential health care and a wellness resource center for all students. Appointments may be made but walk-ins are welcome. The office is open during the academic year and staffed by a full-time registered nurse.
New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires that full and part-time students submit proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella within thirty (30) days of beginning classes.
New York State Public Health Law 2167 requires that ALL College students either receive the vaccination against Meningococcal meningitis, or acknowledge that they have been made aware of the risks and have chosen not to be vaccinated.
To learn more about meningitis contact our office or your private physician. You can also find information about the disease and the vaccine that is available at the New York Department of Health Website or at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Website.
