Every U.S. state requires certain immunizations (also known as vaccines, vaccinations, inoculations or shots) for children to attend school. Oregon’s immunization law helps protect kids and communities against 11 different diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and Hib. Some of these diseases are more common than others, but all still exist and can be serious.


To attend public schools, charter schools, private schools, preschools and childcare facilities in Oregon, students must have a complete and up-to-date record of vaccination, medical or nonmedical exemption, or immunity documentation for every immunization required for the student’s grade.
