Student Health Services promotes the health and safety of the entire FLCC community, including our student body. In order to attend in-person classes, you are required to be immunized against certain diseases.
According to FLCC Immunization Policy and NYS Public Health Law #2165, students must submit proof of immunity against Measles, Mumps and Rubella. If you were born before January 1, 1957, you are exempt from this requirement.
All students (except Gemini) must also receive information on meningococcal meningitis disease and vaccine availability. The student or parent of a minor child must complete a meningitis response form indicating that they have received the meningitis information, and have either (1) had the vaccine, or (2) decline to receive the vaccine.
Finger Lakes Community College, as part of the State University of New York, encourages all students to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as part of our comprehensive efforts to promote health and safety. We are awaiting further information from the state and SUNY on the status of a vaccine requirement for in-person students this fall. We will share this information with current and prospective students as it becomes available.
Proof of Immunity
Immunization requirements are different for each disease. It is important to make sure that you have the proper dosage.
Measles, Mumps, and Rubella
MEASLES: Two doses of live measles vaccine (given 1968 or after). The first dose must have been given on or after 12 months of age. The second dose must have been given on or after 15 months of age.
MUMPS: One dose of live mumps vaccine received on or after the first birthday.
RUBELLA: One dose of live rubella vaccine received on or after the first birthday.
Check with your physician or high school to obtain official immunization records. Serologic evidence of immunity (titers) to measles, mumps and rubella will be accepted only with submission of certified lab results.
Proof of honorable discharge from the armed services within ten years from the date of application to the College qualifies as a certificate enabling the student to attend the institution, pending actual receipt of immunization records.
Currently, the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer/BioNTech, and Moderna vaccines are approved by the FDA for emergency use in the United States. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose. The Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two doses administered at least 21 and 28 days apart respectively.
Once you are fully vaccinated, you will receive a vaccination record card that lists the vaccine you received, along with the date your final vaccine was administered.
If you are a fully online student, you are exempt from the above immunization requirements.
Hybrid, HyFlex, or part-time students who take at least one course on campus must still meet immunization requirements.

Immunization information can be submitted online through your Student Health Portal. Once completed by your healthcare provider, you can easily submit proof of your immunizations by following these steps:

- Select "Document Upload"
- Choose document type "Immunizations"
- Take a photo and upload your immunization record, vaccination card, or other documentation
Download and Print Option
You can also download and print our immunization form. Once completed by your healthcare provider, the form can be uploaded using the Student Health Portal, mailed to Student Health Services, 3325 Marvin Sands Dr., Canandaigua, NY 14424, or dropped off at Student Health Services (Room 3815, Main Campus).
What happens if proof of immunization isn't received?
NYS Public Health Law #2165 will not permit continued attendance by individuals failing to present the required proof by the 30th day of the semester.
- Students who have not submitted proof of immunity by the 30th day will be administratively withdrawn from classes.
- Noncompliance can jeopardize course completion, future registrations, financial aid eligibility and refunds of tuition or fees.
- In the event that an outbreak of one of the illnesses noted above occurs, access to College facilities will be restricted only to those having proof of immunity.
Persons requiring additional information or having questions relative to health or religious matters, should direct their inquiries to Student Health Services or call (585)785-1297.
