How to Get Your Oregon Exemption for Vaccines
Is your school threatening to kick your child out for missing vaccines?
Have you received the State letter from Immunization Alert informing you of which vaccines your child needs or they will be excluded from school?
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
We are not living in NAZI Germany. The State does not have the right to force vaccines on your child without your consent and there is a way to get an exemption from the State “mandated” vaccines.
Oregonians for Medical Freedom, (I am a co-chair) succeeded in shutting down SB 442 that would have required all vaccines to attend school. While a law was passed so schools could post how many under-vaccinated or unvaccinated children they have in their school, they are not allowed to post your specific information nor should they harass you as I’m hearing has been happening.
Thankfully we still live in a relatively free country (although those freedoms are fast evaporating as happened in California where children must get all vaccines to attend daycare or school).
If you live in Oregon and you have thoughtfully considered which vaccines to give your child and which to delay or not do at all, then you can get your exemption by watching the State video and printing off a certificate for each of your children. Take this certificate to your school and let them know your child has a constitutionally protected right to an education and that you have met the State requirements for an exemption. Have them make a note of it and you should NOT stand and listen to any non-sense about anything from an uneducated secretary, teacher, or principal. If you have been one of my patients, you almost certainly know a lot more about vaccines, and which ones make sense and which do not, than most doctors in the country let alone non-medical folks!
