Oregon Immunization Video

Medical freedom is your right in the state of Oregon (unlike in California, New York, and other states). You have the right to decline vaccines for yourself and your children. In order to get this exemption, however, the State requires that guardians first watch this video and click through all the prompts. At the end of the video is a certificate. Be sure to print out at many certificates as you have children (or just 1 for yourself), and keep copies for your records. The certificate is all you need to turn in to school/camp/etc. when they ask for vaccine records. Likewise, if you get a threatening letter from your child’s public school saying s/he can’t come to school until x, y, and z vaccines are administered, that is not true. All that’s needed is proof that you either got the vaccine or conscientiously declined it and got an exemption; the certificate is all they need to have on file.
