Immunization Rates & Requirements

Oregon law requires that all children in Grades K-12 entering Oregon schools for the first time be immunized. New students will not be allowed to start school without the required immunizations.
 

Immunizations required for Kindergarten through 12th Grade (Oregon.gov)

School administrators are required to exclude from school those students not having proof of at least one dose of each of the above-noted immunizations. The only exceptions are those children who have health problems that would prevent them from receiving the inoculations and those whose religious teachings oppose immunizations.
