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.

  • Transfer Students: 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 TO SUBMIT VACCINATION HISTORY

Upload all of your vaccine history and your CDC COVID vaccine card to My Hazen.

  • Go to the “Upload” tab
  • From the drop down menu, select “COVID Vaccine Records” and “Select File”
  • Attach, then click “Upload”

If you have questions, please email the Health Center.

Students granted a medical or religious exemption will be subject to certain restrictions and COVID-19 screening and testing responsibilities detailed in this policy. You are responsible to uphold the restrictions and testing requirements.

We would request off campus and commuter students that have the COVID 19 series do not seek a waiver for the COVID BOOSTER since it is not required.


Medical Exemptions: Forms
Students may be exempt from this vaccine requirement if a duly licensed health care provider certifies in writing that the COVID-19 Vaccination may be detrimental to the student’s health. The campus shall provide reasonable accommodations to those students whose medical condition(s) contraindicates COVID-19 vaccination as long as the failure to be vaccinated does not prevent the student from otherwise fulfilling the programmatic or curricular requirements of their academic program.

  • Any such requests will be reviewed and granted on a case-by-case basis by the campus.
  • All students granted a medical exemption will be required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 and wear face coverings while indoors and while outdoors and unable to social distance.

Requests for medical exemptions must contain:

  • The certification of a licensed healthcare provider,
  • Sufficient information for Student Health Service staff to understand the medical basis for the exemption,
  • The necessary length of the requested exemption,
  • Contact information for the healthcare provider.

Religious Exemptions: Forms
Students who hold genuine and sincere religious beliefs which are contrary to COVID-19 vaccination may be exempt after submitting a written statement to that effect.

Statement MUST INCLUDE:

  • Such statement should explain how receiving the COVID-19 vaccination conflicts with the student’s sincere religious belief or practice and how not receiving the COVID-19 vaccination will not otherwise prevent the student’s completion of their programmatic or curricular requirements of the academic program.

DO NOT INCLUDE:

  • General philosophical or moral objections to such vaccine, they will not be granted.
  • Students granted a religious exemption will be required to be tested weekly for COVID-19 and wear face coverings while indoors and while outdoors and unable to social distance.
