Measles Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Meningococcal Meningitis Requirement

New York State Public Health Law 2167 requires that all college and university students, regardless of age, who are enrolled for at least six (6) semester hours or the equivalent per semester, must complete and return the Meningococcal Vaccination Response Form prior to your first semester. This information appears on Part 3 of the Immunization Form. Failure to submit this form will delay your registration.

To submit this information through your CUNYfirst account:

  • Navigate to "Self Service," then to "Student Center"
  • Under the "To Do List" tab, click on "Meningitis Acknowledgement Form."
  • You will be able to review information regarding the Meningococcal Meningitis vaccine, and respond electronically.

The Meningococcal Meningitis vaccine is not mandatory, but we require proof that you have received the vaccine within the last five years before the meningitis hold can be removed. Students who choose to decline the vaccine online will have an immediate removal of the hold.
