New Student Health History and Immunizations

New York States requires college students 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 disease. 

Required: All new students must complete the following steps to be eligible to start classes and/or move onto campus (commuter students must comply as well):

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 College, you can log in to our health portal using your MyNaz username (such as ksmith2) and password:

Health Portal

3. Enter your immunization dates, health history, and health insurance information. Upload a copy of your official immunization record directly into the portal as well. Instructions are provided in the portal. Save a copy of your immunization record, as you may need this information in the future.

4.Students who have not submitted their information by Fall semester will incur a non-refundable fee of $100 which will be charged to their student account, and they will be unable to register for classes for the following semester.
