Immunization Compliance (Follow-Up Report)

Many of the students attending colleges in the City University of New York (CUNY) are required by the New York State Public Health Law to meet the immunization requirements specified in the Law. We obtained a listing of the CUNY students who were subject to these immunization requirements, and randomly selected 210 of the students to determine whether they complied with the requirements. On the basis of our sample results, we projected that more than 98 percent of the total population of students complied with the immunization requirements. We also determined that improvements were needed in certain recordkeeping and documentation practices. When we followed up on these matters with CUNY officials, we found that some of these improvements had been made.
