While all students are strongly encouraged to stay up to date on their vaccinations as defined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including obtaining any booster authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC for their age group.

Measles, Mumps & Rubella

Proof of Immunization OR an approved Medical Exemption

NY State Public Health Law Section 2165 mandates that ALL students born on or after 1/1/57 provide documentation of proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella on or after the first birthday. Students will not be permitted to register for classes without proof of Immunization. An immunization hold will be placed on your record, and will NOT be lifted until acceptable proof of immunization is submitted and accepted by the college.

Students born on or after January 1, 1957 who wish to register for more than 5 credits in any single semester are required to have one of the following on file with the College:

  1. Proof of immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella diseases before registering* OR

  2. An approved medical exemption.

*Only ONE of the following is required as proof of immunization:

  • (1) Proof of two doses of the live measles vaccine, with the first dose given no more than 4 days prior to the first birthday and the second at least 28 days after the first dose, AND (2) one dose of the live mumps vaccine received no more than 4 days prior to the first birthday, AND (3) one dose of live rubella vaccine received no more than 4 days prior to the first birthday;
  • Serological proof of MMR immunity (titer).

Meningococcal Meningitis

 Proof of Immunization OR an acknowledgment of meningococcal disease risks and refusal of meningitis immunization

 

NY State Public Health Law Section 2167 requires that SUNY Orange distributes written information about meningococcal meningitis and meningitis immunization to all students (or parents/guardians for students under the age of 18 years).

The law requires all students regardless of age, registering for more than 5 credits, have one of the following on file with the College:

  1. Proof of immunization for meningococcal meningitis disease OR

  2. A signed acknowledgment of meningococcal disease risks and a refusal of the meningitis immunization.

 

Exemptions to the COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements

To request an exemption to the COVID-19 Vaccine and/or booster requirement a student may submit a request for:

  1. Medical Exemption:  Students must have a duly licensed health care provider certify in writing (using the SUNY Orange COVID-19 Medical Exemption Form by emailing the vpss@sunyorange.edu for the link) that the COVID-19 Vaccination may be detrimental to the student’s health.  The college shall provide reasonable accommodations to those students whose medical condition(s) contraindicates COVID-19 Vaccination so long as the failure to be vaccinated does not prevent the student from otherwise fulfilling the programmatic or curricular requirements of their academic program.

  2. Religious Exemption: Students who hold genuine and sincere religious beliefs which are contrary to COVID-19 Vaccination may qualify for an exemption. Students requesting a religious exemption must submit a written statement (using the SUNY Orange COVID-19 Medical Exemption Form by emailing the vpss@sunyorange.edu for the link) that explains how receiving the COVID-19 Vaccination conflicts with the their sincere religious belief or practice and how not receiving the COVID-19 Vaccination will not otherwise prevent the student’s completion of their programmatic or curricular requirements of the academic program. General philosophical or moral objections to such vaccine shall not suffice as the basis for a religious exemption.  The statement must be written in the student’s own words.
