New Student Health History and Immunizations

New York States requires college students to demonstrate immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, and the receipt of information on (or vaccine for) meningococcal meningitis. This requires receiving two doses of the MMR vaccine, or proof of immunity, and documentation on meningococcal disease. Please visit the NYS Department of Health for more specific information.

Required: All new students must complete the following steps to be eligible to start classes:

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

2. Access the Nazareth Student Health Portal. This can be accessed starting 48 hours after your deposit is paid to Nazareth College. Log in using your NazNet username (such as smith2) and password.

3. Enter your immunization dates, health history, and health insurance information into the portal. You will also need to 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.
