NEW YORK STATE LAW: MENINGOCOCCAL MENINGITIS VACCINE 

The Center for Disease Control Advisory committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recently issued a new recommendation for college students registered for 6 credit hours or more: Students, especially those living in residence halls, should consider vaccination to reduce their risk for meningococcal disease.

New York State Public Health Law 2167 requires: 

A response to receipt of meningococcal disease and vaccine information signed by the student or student’s parent or guardian (if under the age of 18) 

AND EITHER 

A record of at least 1 dose of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine within the past 5 years 

OR 

An acknowledgement of meningococcal disease risks and refusal of meningococcal vaccination response form signed by the student or student’s parent or guardian (if under the age of 18). 

SUNY Cobleskill does not offer the meningococcal meningitis vaccine. Students should contact their private health care provider for vaccination.  Click the following link for further information on Meningococcal Disease:

SUNY Student COVID-19 Vaccine Policy:

The SUNY student COVID-19 Vaccine Policy requires that students who have a physical presence on campus must provide evidence of the initial course of COVID vaccinations.  Students are considered fully vaccinated for the initial course of vaccination (1) two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series or (2) two weeks after receiving a single dose in a one dose COVID-19 vaccine series.  All students are strongly encouraged to stay up to date on their vaccinations, including obtaining any booster authorized by the FDA and recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. While not requiring a booster at this time, SUNY reserves the authority to impose a requirement for any booster at any time as a result of changes in local conditions or as a result of requirements imposed by Federal, State, or local authorities.

Students may request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for medical or religious reasons.   Exemption requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis by a committee; they are not automatically granted. Outcomes of requests will be communicated through our secure messaging system. All students who are exempt must participate in the mandatory surveillance testing program.  Students with exemptions may be excluded from all in-person classes and activities at the college’s discretion should a COVID-19 outbreak occur on campus.  SUNY Cobleskill may impose additional restrictions as needed.

Medical Exemption Form (due by 8/12/22)

Religious Exemption Form (due by 8/12/22)

Requests for Exemptions must include a Wellness Center Authorization for Release of Information Form
