Immunization Resources for School and Child Care Staff
kids walking to school

Shots are required by law for children in attendance at public and private schools, preschools, child care facilities, and Head Start programs in Oregon.

Nearly every place that provides care for a child outside the home requires shots or a medical or nonmedical exemption to stay enrolled.

By far, most parents in Oregon vaccinate their children. But parents who do not want their children to be vaccinated can claim a nonmedical exemption for one or all school immunizations.
