Proposed bill could force vaccinations on Oregon students

SALEM, Ore.– A proposed bill that would require Oregon students to be vaccinated by 2022 could be added to the 2021 Oregon state legislature.

The state released a draft of the proposed bill last month, outlining how vaccination requirements would be upheld, especially in schools.

The draft says it would prohibit certain children from attending in-person classes if the child is not given the required vaccinations before August 1st, 2022.

It would also remove religious or philosophical exemption from vaccination requirements for schools and children’s¬†facilities.

The bill also would have the ability to allow certain students to attend school without being vaccinated if the student meets a certain criteria.
