Orders for blood work and X-rays can also be provided. Students are financially responsible for the cost(s) of pharmacy services/medication, specimen processing, and/or diagnostic imaging.
John Jay College's Health Services Center ensures that students comply with New York State Immunization Laws.
Measles, Mumps & Rubella
Public Health Law Section 2165 requires that all college students, born on or after January 1, 1957, provide proof of immunization for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR).
To better understand the requirements, please read the following materials:
Health Services Center offers free MMR vaccinations to students.
New York State law requires all college students to be educated about meningococcal meningitis disease and to sign a response form stating that they have been vaccinated within the last five (5) years; or have received information about the disease and have chosen not to be vaccinated.
Information about meningitis disease and the available vaccine is mailed to all students and can be found by clicking this link.
You should speak to your health provider if you wish to be vaccinated.
In case of a medical emergency when the Health Services Center is closed, the Office of Campus Security should be notified in person, by phone at 212.237.8888, or by calling on one of the emergency phones located in the hallways throughout the college.
Health Services representatives assist students in the completion of appropriate accident insurance claim forms in the event of injury during an off-campus, activity sponsored and/or supervised by the College. The incident should be reported to the College Health Services in Room L 68.00NB. To set up an appointment, call 212-621-4169.

Non-CUNY Immunization Request: $7.00.
From time to time, CUNY students or employees may contract an infectious disease that can be spread through casual contact, or they may learn that another student or employee has contracted such a disease. In such circumstances, to ensure the health and safety of the entire CUNY community, students and employees must follow this protocol. Infectious diseases that can be spread through casual contact include measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), chickenpox, hepatitis A; meningococcal meningitis, tuberculosis, pertussis (whooping cough) or MRSA. If a student or an employee is in doubt whether an infectious disease is covered, they should notify the campus Health Services. For more information click here.PDF
The use or promotion of tobacco products on and off-campus-sponsored events is detrimental to the health and safety of students, staff, and visitors. John Jay prohibits smoking, chewing, or otherwise ingesting tobacco or tobacco products in all campus facilities, whether owned, rented, or leased, and in all vehicles that the College owns, leases, rents, contracts for, or controls. Exposure to second-hand smoke is harmful and we recognize our social responsibility to protect the health of students and staff by providing a tobacco-free environment for our campus.
