Immunization Record

New Jersey State law requires that all full-time community college students provide proof (immunization certificates required):

  • 2 doses of the measles vaccine
  • 1 dose of mumps
  • 1 dose of rubella
  • 3 doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine

Students born prior to 1957 are exempt from the measles, mumps and rubella requirements only and need to present proof of age

Hepatitis B Vaccine

New Jersey State law also requires that all new, full-time, degree-seeking students enrolling at a public or private institution of higher education in this state shall be vaccinated for Hepatitis B (Three [3] doses).  This includes students born prior to 1957.

Students whose religious principles prohibit injections may request a religious exemption; an essay of explanation is required. Students may request a medical exemption if the vaccine is medically contraindicated; a statement by a licensed physician is required. Full-time, matriculated students who have not fulfilled all requirements may be barred from full-time registration after their first semester.
