Updated Vaccination Records Needed

Dear Parents,

A quick reminder about required vaccinations for school attendance. The state of Oregon requires children to receive certain vaccinations to attend public and private schools. If your child has had additional shots since you last provided the school with a shot record, please provide a copy of their updated record. Please note that immunizations can come due at any time during the year based on your previous immunization schedule.

Exclusion day is February 18. Any child that has not already had all required immunizations will be excluded from school until they are up to date, so please take note of your child's immunization status and schedule accordingly. I will begin contacting families directly about missing shots in the next week.

If you are claiming a nonmedical exemption to vaccines for your child, you will need to review the updates to Oregon Immunization Law that affect how this exemption can be claimed. More information about these changes can be found here: http://public.health.oregon.gov/preventionwellness/vaccinesimmunization/gettingimmunized/pages/school.aspx
