The Weigel Health Center provides health and wellness services to all registered students. There is no charge for most services.
Proof of Immunizations
New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires that all college students show proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella. This documentation must be on file with the Buffalo State Weigel Health Center. The requirement applies to all full-time and part-time students. Exception: if you were born before January 1, 1957, you are exempt from this requirement, but you must provide proof of date of birth to the Buffalo State Weigel Health Center.
Complete the New Student Health Form and Meningitis Response Form. A hold will be placed on your account, which will prevent registration, until you provide proper proof of immunization on file with the health center.
Immunization records may be obtained from a health-care provider or previous college. Students who graduated from another college in the last seven years should obtain their health records from their previous college or arrange to have them sent to the Weigel Health Center. Current Buffalo State students do not have to submit proof as it is already on file. However, if you are not a current Buffalo State student but attended within the last seven years, it is your responsibility to reactivate your health file by calling the health center.
Health Services and Health Insurance
Students taking 12 credit hours or more are mandated to have health insurance and are automatically enrolled into the Buffalo State College Health Insurance Plan. Students taking less than 12 credit hours are not automatically enrolled but may enroll at the beginning of the academic year. This program covers visits to community physicians, laboratory expenses, prescription drugs and emergency room visits, among other benefits. Spouse and dependent coverage is also available. International students must purchase SUNY International Health Insurance or have comparable coverage.
