Meningococcal Disease

Public Health Law 2167 requires institutions, including colleges and universities, to distribute information about meningococcal disease and vaccination to all students registering for 6 or more credits, whether they live on or off campus. Hunter College of the City University of New York is required to maintain a record of the following for each student: a) response to receipt of meningococcal disease and vaccine information signed by the student; b) record of meningococcal meningitis immunization within the past 10 years; OR c) acknowledgment of meningococcal disease risks and refusal of meningococcal meningitis immunization signed by the student. Students can submit this information using the Health Services Immunization Form or can do so electronically through their CUNYfirst account. To learn more about meningitis and the vaccine, please consult your physician. You can also find information about the disease at http://www.cdc.gov.
