    Immunization Requirements

    What parents need to do: Before a child starts school, the parent or guardian must complete, sign
    and submit an Oregon Certificate of Immunization Status, showing compliance with state immunization requirements. The information submitted must include the date each immunization was received. 
    Certificate of Immunization Status

    Which immunizations are required: Students must be immunized against polio, measles, mumps,
    rubella, diphtheria,
    tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis A (some grades), hepatitis B, varicella (chicken pox),
    and Tdap (some grades). The number
    of doses required varies depending on the student’s age and
    grade level. Some other important vaccines are
    recommended by health care providers but are not
    required for school attendance.

    Where to get immunizations: Vaccines are available at many health care providers’ offices, many
    pharmacies,
    Jackson County Public Health (541-774-8200), and Josephine County Public Health (541-474-5325). Call for information or to schedule an appointment.

    children’s immunization
    records. Tips on finding old immunization records

    Medical exemptions: If there is a medical reason for the student not to have immunizations, the
    parent must provide
    a signed letter from a licensed physician documenting the medical exemption
    or immunity and the reason for it, along
    with the completed Certificate of Immunization Status.
    Medical exemptions are reviewed and approved by the health
    department.

    Nonmedical exemptions: If a parent seeks a nonmedical exemption from one or more required
    immunizations, the parent must provide a completed Vaccine Education Certificate, available
    from a health care practitioner or from the online vaccine education module at
    www.healthoregon.org/vaccineexemption, along with the completed Certificate of Immunization
    Status. The Vaccine Education Certificate must be valid for all of the vaccines for which a
    nonmedical immunization exemption is being sought. A separate certificate is required for
    each child.

    How to claim a nonmedical exemption

    Prior religious exemptions no longer valid: The 2015 Oregon Legislature enacted Senate
    Bill 895, changing state  laws about school immunizations. Religious exemptions received
    before March 1, 2014 are no longer valid. Parents of students who previously had a religious
    exemption have two options: Complete the required vaccinations, and/or request a medical
    or nonmedical exemption from one or more required vaccinations. Students must have
    current school records of all required vaccinations or valid exemptions to continue attending
    school on and after Exclusion Day, Feb. 17, 2016. Information for parents about this change.
