Immunization & Physical Exam Requirements

New York State Law requires that students who are on campus for 6 credits or more need to provide proof of having received 2 MMR's (Measles, Mumps & Rubella).  This law applies to all students born after January 1, 1957.

A Public Health Law effective August 15, 2003, makes it mandatory for ALL college students taking 6 or more credits on campus to receive information about Meningitis Disease and Vaccine.  ALL students must have a record of receiving the Meningitis Vaccine within the past 5 years OR sign a waiver declining the vaccine. A Meningitis information sheet can be accessed here.

With the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on August 23, 2021, Herkimer College is requiring full COVID-19 vaccinations for all students enrolled in on-campus classes or planning to be on campus for any reason, in accordance with State University of New York policy.

Students must submit their proof of completion of a COVID-19 vaccine series to the Dean of Students Office either via email to deanofstudents@herkimer.edu, or via fax to 315-866-1808. They can also be submitted online to the COVID Vaccination Confirmation form. Students can download the Request for Medical Immunization Exemption form or the Request for Religious Immunization Exemption form from the College website, or obtain them from the Dean of Students Office.

Students must submit the required records prior to the first day on campus.  A hold will be placed on your student account until these requirements are met. The hold will prevent transactions from being made on your account including, but not limited to, adding/dropping classes and receiving financial aid refunds.
