Make sure your children are up to date on their vaccines! We’re bringing vaccines to Nyssa Elementary School in the Mac Hall Gym (809 Bower Ave, Nyssa) Friday, January 13, 2023 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Share the flyers in English and Spanish. All ages welcome–family and guardians, too!
Parents must provide schools and child care facilities with kids’ vaccine records.
Getting your children vaccinated now is critical! February 15th is School Exclusion Day, and the Oregon Immunization Program is reminding parents that children will not be able to attend school or child care starting that day if their records on file show missing immunizations.
Under state law, all children in public and private schools, preschools, Head Start and certified child care facilities must have up-to-date documentation on their immunizations or have an exemption. If a child’s school and child care vaccination records are not up to date on February 15th, the child will be sent home.
“Immunization is the best way to protect children against vaccine-preventable diseases such as whooping cough and measles. It helps keep schools and the entire community safe and healthy.”Stacy de Assis Matthews, school law coordinator in the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division
