In NYS, as in most other states, MMR’s are required to attend Public Schools. A good place to start your search is your High School. Your pediatrician or present physician may have records of your immunizations.
If you attended another New York State college you should have submitted these records also. If you have ever received services at a public health clinic, your county's Public Health Department may still have record of them.
Those who have been honorably discharged from the Military within the past 10 years may be eligible for a Service exemption. A copy of your honorable discharge and a request to the Military requesting your records is required to obtain this exemption. Please see the student Health Center for assistance. The Military has forwarded us a form which may be filled out by our Veterans to assist them in obtaining their records. Please see the Student Health Center staff on the Utica Campus. The Student Affairs office on the Rome Campus will be glad to assist you.
If you cannot locate your records through one of the previous avenues you have two options:
- Receive the vaccinations again. Please keep in mind, if you need both vaccinations they must be at least 28 days apart.
- Get a titer test to show proof of immunity. You will need a prescription from your doctor for a titer, or blood test, which will show your immunity to a disease. You must test positive to satisfy NYS requirements.
