How to meet the meningitis requirement

  • Check to see if the meningitis information* is in your health records you sent to the Health Center in your online patient portal, MY HAZEN.
  • If not, complete the online form in MY HAZEN to decline the vaccine.
  • If you choose to receive the shot, vaccines are available at:
    • Your health care provider – call ahead to check on availability
    • Rite Aid Pharmacy: (585) 637-1151
    • Wegmans Pharmacy: (585) 637-6855
    • Monroe County Health Department: call (585) 274-6151 for further information about their services

These requirements must be completed before classes begin or you will be deregistered and not permitted to attend classes. In addition, a hold will be placed on your account and you will be charged a fee to re-register for the classes.

*Please note, meningitis vaccinations are invalid if they are more than five years old. If your meningitis vaccine will become invalid during the current school year, please arrange to have the vaccine administered to you and provide the Health Center with record of your new vaccine. Or, you may decline the vaccine on the patient portal if you have read the meningitis information sheet and believe this is the best decision for you.

How do I get my immunization records sent to the Health Center?

New York State requires students to provide immunization records by the start of classes. We must receive your immunization records before classes start to avoid de-registration of classes.

Preferred: Upload the immunization records to the patient portal, MY HAZEN.

To obtain records:

  • Ask your primary care physician, pediatrician, high school or former college to send the records to Hazen.
  • If you are serving or have served in the military, you may bring/send your records or inform us of your service.
  • Have your immunization records sent or faxed to:

Hazen Center for Integrated Care
Student Health Center

The College at Brockport
350 New Campus Drive
Brockport, NY 14420
Fax: (585) 395-2559

Transfer students, please note: Immunization records are not automatically forwarded with your academic transcript. You must contact your previous college to request your immunization records or check their website for the ability to print off your immunization records to be sent to Brockport.

How do I obtain or check the immunization records that Brockport already has on file?

  • Log onto the patient portal, MY HAZEN.
