    The annual exclusion date, by which all students must have received their required vaccinations, is fast approaching. Our partners from the Multnomah Education Service District have shared the following message:

    Don't let your child miss school
    If your student is missing vaccines, now is the time to catch up. February 19, 2020 is school exclusion day. On this date, PPS students who are not up to date on vaccinations will be unable to attend school or district-provided childcare. See school immunization requirements.

    Where to get your child vaccinated
    You can get your child’s shots at their regular health care provider. If your child doesn’t have a regular health care provider or you can’t get an appointment, you can get them vaccinated at one of the following places:

    Multnomah County Student Health Centers (SHCs)

    PPS partners with Multnomah County Health Department to provide comprehensive preventative, primary and mental healthcare services for all Multnomah County school-age youth regardless of ability to pay at Student Health Centers in the following PPS high schools: Cleveland, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison (at Marshall), and Roosevelt.

    • All SHC locations and hours
    • PPS students ages 5-18 can get vaccinations for no out-of-pocket cost at the PPS Student Health Center nearest you. Your PPS student doesn't need to attend the school to get care.
    • PPS Student Health Centers accept all types of insurance, including Kaiser, and serve the uninsured.

    Multnomah County Primary Care Clinics

    • Low or no-cost vaccinations for children, including uninsured.
    • Call 503-988-5558 to make a new patient appointment.

    Get a letter?
    Families of students whose records show missing immunizations will have received a letter from Multnomah Education Service District (MESD) in November. Bring it with you along with your child's immunization records when you take your child to be vaccinated. Immunizations are one of the best ways to prevent diseases and keep everyone healthy.
