Student Health Information and  Immunization Requirements

COVID-19 vaccination: As of May 11, 2023, COVID-19 vaccination is recommended, not required.


New York States requires university students taking six or more credits and born after 1957 to demonstrate immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella, and to receive information on (or the vaccine for) meningococcal meningitis. This requires receiving two doses of the MMR vaccine, or proof of immunity, and documentation on meningococcal vaccine. 

Required: All new students (including commuter students) must complete the following FOUR steps to be eligible to start classes (and for residential students to move onto campus)*:

*Note: once you complete all steps, please wait 7-10 business days for the new student dashboard to be manually updated by all departments.

1. Obtain a copy of your immunization record from your doctor's office, previously attended college, the military, or your high school.

2. Starting 48 hours after your deposit is paid to Nazareth University, you can log in to our health portal using your MyNaz username (such as ksmith2) and password.
