  • Immunization

    You must submit proof that you've been immunized for measles, mumps and rubella prior to registering for your classes. Detailed requirements for individual vaccine requirements are listed below for your reference. There will be no exemptions unless otherwise indicated my New York State Law (see below).

    You may submit your immunization records or a completed immunization form to the Health Services Center located in room MB40 or by fax to (718) 609-2016.

    Free immunization clinics are offered by LaGuardia Health Services Center periodically throughout the year.

    Individual vaccine requirements

    • Measles: Two doses of live measles vaccine administered on/after January 1, 1968 and on/after your first birthday. Second dose to be administered at least 28 days after the first dose, or documentation of measles disease signed by a physician, or a blood test showing immunity to the disease.
    • Mumps: One dose of live mumps vaccine administered on/after January 1, 1969 and on/after your first birthday, or documentation of mumps disease signed by a physician, or a blood test showing immunity to the disease.
    • Rubella: One dose of live rubella vaccine administered on/after January 1, 1969 and on/after first birthday, or a blood test showing immunity to disease.

    Note: a history of having had rubella is not acceptable proof of immunity.


    You are exempt from submitting proof of immunization if:

    You were born on or before January 1, 1957. (Proof of age required – copy of a birth certificate or driver’s license.)

    OR

    You have documentation of medical contraindications by a physician.

    OR

    You have documentation of sincere religious belief that prohibits immunization.
