Protect yourself and your family - Immunizations are an excellent way to protect yourself and your family against many diseases. Age-appropriate immunization starts at birth and continues through adulthood, with special emphasis through age two.
Back to School
The 2023-24 school exclusion day is FEBRUARY 21st, 2024
Children who attend public or private schools, preschools, childcare facilities, and/or Head Start programs are required by law to stay up to date with immunizations.
If immunizations are not up to date by exclusion day, the student will not be able to attend until proper documentation of immunization status is received or an exemption is approved.
Vaccine schedules are based on nationally recommended standards. For vaccine recommendations for persons 18 years of age or younger, see the Recommended Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule.
Most insurance, including the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), are accepted by medical providers. Please check with your insurance company before making an appointment. However, no child will be denied vaccines due to inability to pay.
The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program helps provide vaccines to children whose parents or guardians may not be able to afford them. This helps to ensure that all children have a better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations on schedule.
To be eligible for VFC, a child (age 0-18 years) must fit one of these categories:
- Enrolled in Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan;
- Uninsured; or
- American Indian/Alaskan Native.
Children whose health insurance policies do not cover some or all vaccines, or only cover vaccines until a child reaches a certain age (i.e. considered "underinsured"), may receive no cost immunizations at public sites such as county health department clinics and clinics that are designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).
Vaccines for Adults
For vaccine recommendations for persons 19 years of age or older, see the Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule by Age.
