Today is school exclusion day-- meaning that Oregon kids are not allowed in schools unless parents have provided the child’s up-to-date immunization records.

As of today-- state law requires that all children in public and private schools, as well as certified child care facilities have up-to-date documentation on their immunizations.

Required shots include vaccinations for polio, chicken pox, mumps, measles, and whooping cough.

Parents do have the option of exempting their child from immunizations due to medical, or religious reasons.
