To avoid outbreaks of disease and to keep our children and community healthy, Oregon requires by law that all students attending public and private schools, preschools, child care facilities, and Head Start programs receive required vaccinations. To help increase the number of people vaccinated every year, these programs submit immunization records to the Health Department. When a student is not up-to-date on required vaccines or does not have proper documentation for an exemption, the student will receive a letter of exclusion from the Health Department. Until proper documentation of immunization status is received, the student is unable to return to school. This year’s school exclusion date is February 21st, 2018.
Students can receive immunizations from their primary care provider, Lincoln County Public Health, or one of our four school based health centers. Some local pharmacies may also provide immunizations to adolescents 7 years and older. Because not all pharmacies are able to perform vaccinations, it is recommended to call the pharmacy of choice beforehand.
