Oregon Immunization for Schools
Who Must File
Almost all Schools and Childcare Facilities need to file.
Child care providers that are registered with the Office of Child Care need to maintain an up-to-date Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) form for each child in their care, but do not participate in the immunization review and exclusion cycle.
If you're unsure if you need to file, please contact the Oregon Health Authority at 971-673-0282.
Permanent Medical: The condition is a medical reason not to immunize and it will not change in the future. Permanent medical exemptions do not need to be reviewed again. Children with permanent medical exemptions should be included in the susceptible list for the vaccines for which they are medically exempt.
Temporary Medical: The condition is a medical reason not to immunize but is short term and expected to resolve in the future. The health department will assign a future review date on the Medical Exemption Review Summary form and return the form to you. When the review date arrives, the child is required to obtain the necessary vaccinations, or the health department needs to be notified so they can review the documentation to determine whether there should be a continuation of the medical exemption.
Children who cannot get shots because of a medical reason need a note from a health care provider. The doctors note gets sent to the local health department to review. They will let you know if it is approved as a permanent or temporary medical exemption or if it is denied. If denied, the parent will need to either get the child vaccinated or obtain a nonmedical exemption.
Video Education Certificate: Certificate issued once the guardian has completed an online educational video.
Health Care Education Certificate: Certificate issued once the guardian has consulted with a Health Care Practioner.
