Purpose and Intent

(1) The purpose of these rules is to implement ORS 433.235 through 433.284, which require evidence of immunization, a medical or nonmedical exemption, or immunity documentation for each child as a condition of attendance in any school or facility, and which require exclusion from school or facility attendance until such requirements are met.

(2) The intent of the school and facility immunization statutes and these rules is to require that:

(a) A new enterer provide a signed and dated Certificate of Immunization Status form documenting evidence of immunization, documentation of medical or nonmedical exemption, or immunity documentation.

(b) A transferring child provide evidence of immunization, immunity documentation or an exemption:

(A) Within 30 days of initial attendance if records will be requested from a school in the United States;

(B) Prior to initial attendance, as specified in OAR 333-050-0020(2)(a), if records will not be requested from a school in the United States;

(C) Prior to initial attendance, as specified in OAR 333-050-0020(2)(a), if the child is transferring from one facility to another;

(c) A child currently attending not be allowed to continue in attendance without complete or up-to-date evidence of immunization, immunity documentation, or an exemption.

(3) All children’s facilities are required to comply with these rules, including but not limited to certified child care centers, certified family child care homes, child care centers exempt from certification, Head Start programs, preschools and Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education child care programs.

(4) The only exception is for family child care homes, either registered or exempt from registration, providing child care, six weeks of age to kindergarten entry, in a residential or nonresidential setting. These programs are exempt from all requirements except an up-to-date Certificate of Immunization Status form on each child in attendance.

(5) All schools are required to comply with these rules, including but not limited to public schools, private schools, charter schools, and alternative education programs. Any program that provides educational instruction designed to lead to a high school diploma or transfer into a regular high school program must also comply with these rules.

(6) Nothing prohibits a school, children's facility, or post-secondary educational institution from adopting additional or more stringent requirements than the statutes or rules as long as:

(a) Medical and nonmedical exemptions and immunity documentation are included;

(b) The requirements are in compliance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and

(c) Public schools are required to allow transferring students at least 30 days to provide an immunization record.

(3) Evidence of immunization shall include the month, day and year of each dose of each vaccine received and must be appropriately signed and dated to indicate verification by the signer.

(a) If evidence of immunization includes the month and year, but the day of the dose is not provided, the administrator shall attempt to get the day of immunization from the parent, the ALERT Immunization Information System or another source. If no day is obtainable, the administrator may use the last day of the month to assess the immunization status for the child.

(b) Pre-signed Certificate of Immunization Status forms without vaccine dates are not allowed.

(c) If a Certificate of Immunization Status form is signed but not dated, the person who receives the form at the school or facility may date the form with the date it was received.

(10) If evidence is presented to the local health department that an Exclusion Order was issued in error because a vaccine was given within the four-day grace period recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices as published in the General Recommendations on Immunization, the local health department shall rescind the Exclusion Order. The local health department shall notify the child's school or facility when an Exclusion Order is rescinded.

(11) In situations where a child's vaccine history presents an unusual problem not covered by these rules, the local health department may use its judgment to make a final determination of the child's immunization status.

(12) A nonmedical exemption from immunization requirement is allowed for one or more of the vaccines. Parents claiming a nonmedical exemption must select which vaccines a child is being exempted from by checking the appropriate boxes on the Certificate of Immunization Status and submit the Certificate of Immunization status and the documentation specified in OAR 333-050-0040(12)(a)(C) or 333-050-0040(12)(b)(B) to the school or facility.

Second Dose Measles in Post Secondary Educational Institution

(1) Each post-secondary education institution, except a community college and a private, proprietary vocational school, shall require that each entering full-time student born on or after January 1, 1957, has two doses of measles vaccine prior to the student's second quarter or semester of enrollment on an Oregon campus, using procedures developed by the institution.

(2) For students subject to section (1) of this rule who are attending the institution pursuant to a non-immigrant visa, documentation of measles vaccination must be provided prior to the student attending classes. If the student's first dose of measles vaccine was received less than 30 days prior to attendance, the student has until the beginning of the second term or semester to provide documentation of the second dose.

(3) The following records may be accepted as adequate proof of two doses of measles vaccine:

(a) Written documentation by student, health care practitioner, or an authorized representative of the local health department of the month, day and year of each dose, within four days prior to, on or after the first birthday, with a minimum of 24 days between the first and second dose;

(b) For students born prior to 1984, no available date for the first dose but written documentation by student, health care practitioner, or an authorized representative of the local health department of the month, day and year of the second dose in or after December, 1989;

(c) An unsigned record printout from the statewide immunization information system, ALERT IIS; or

(d) An unsigned record printout from a computer system approved by the Public Health Division as specified in OAR 333-050-0060(5).

(4) Each post-secondary education institution under the jurisdiction of the law shall include a medical and nonmedical exemption and immunity documentation. Signing for a nonmedical exemption requires documentation of a signature of a health care practitioner that the practitioner has reviewed with the student the risks and benefits of immunization or a certificate verifying that the student has completed a vaccine educational module approved by the Public Health Division.

(5) Each post-secondary educational institution under the jurisdiction of the law shall develop procedures to implement and maintain this requirement.

(6) The Public Health Division may conduct validation surveys to ensure compliance.

(7) A student shall not be excluded from a post-secondary institution for failing to receive a required vaccine if the State Health Officer has determined that there is a vaccine shortage and that is the reason the student has not received the vaccine. Any vaccine that has been waived due to a vaccine shortage will be required at the next term or semester, once the shortage has been lifted.

(8) The local public health officer, after consultation with the Public Health Division, may allow a student to attend an educational institution without meeting the minimum immunization requirements in case of temporary local vaccine shortage.

(a) The local health department shall provide a letter signed by the local health officer to the affected student stating that the vaccine requirement is being postponed. The letter must give guidance to the post-secondary institution about when vaccine is expected to be available.

(b) A photocopied form letter signed by the local health officer may be used by the local health department when the shortage is expected to affect more than one student.
