All students are required to complete a health packet prior to arrival at Bard, which includes documentation of a recent physical examination and complete immunization records. New York State law requires that all students born after January 1, 1957, provide proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella.
Additionally, students are provided information from Bard about meningococcal meningitis; they must either document having received the vaccine or sign a waiver declining it. Students who decline Bard’s insurance are required to show proof of health insurance coverage from another provider.
For information about immunization requirements and health insurance, contact:
