Second Dose Measles in Post Secondary Educational Institution
(1)Each post-secondary education institution, except a community college and a private, proprietary vocational school, shall require that each entering full-time student born on or after January 1, 1957, has two doses of measles vaccine prior to the student’s second quarter or semester of enrollment on an Oregon campus, using procedures developed by the institution.
(2)For students subject to section (1) of this rule who are attending the institution pursuant to a non-immigrant visa, documentation of measles vaccination must be provided prior to the student attending classes. If the student’s first dose of measles vaccine was received less than 30 days prior to attendance, the student has until the beginning of the second term or semester to provide documentation of the second dose.
(3)The following records may be accepted as adequate proof of two doses of measles vaccine:
(a)Written documentation by student, health care practitioner, or an authorized representative of the local health department of the month, day and year of each dose, within four days prior to, on or after the first birthday, with a minimum of 24 days between the first and second dose;
(b)For students born prior to 1984, no available date for the first dose but written documentation by student, health care practitioner, or an authorized representative of the local health department of the month, day and year of the second dose in or after December, 1989;
(c)An unsigned record printout from the statewide immunization information system, ALERT IIS; or
(d)An unsigned record printout from a computer system approved by the Public Health Division as specified in OAR 333-050-0060 (Primary Review of Records)(5).
(4)Each post-secondary education institution under the jurisdiction of the law shall include a medical and nonmedical exemption and immunity documentation. Signing for a nonmedical exemption requires documentation of a signature of a health care practitioner that the practitioner has reviewed with the student the risks and benefits of immunization or a certificate verifying that the student has completed a vaccine educational module approved by the Public Health Division.
(5)Each post-secondary educational institution under the jurisdiction of the law shall develop procedures to implement and maintain this requirement.
(6)The Public Health Division may conduct validation surveys to ensure compliance.
(7)A student shall not be excluded from a post-secondary institution for failing to receive a required vaccine if the State Health Officer has determined that there is a vaccine shortage and that is the reason the student has not received the vaccine. Any vaccine that has been waived due to a vaccine shortage will be required at the next term or semester, once the shortage has been lifted.
(8)The local public health officer, after consultation with the Public Health Division, may allow a student to attend an educational institution without meeting the minimum immunization requirements in case of temporary local vaccine shortage.
(a)The local health department shall provide a letter signed by the local health officer to the affected student stating that the vaccine requirement is being postponed. The letter must give guidance to the post-secondary institution about when vaccine is expected to be available.
(b)A photocopied form letter signed by the local health officer may be used by the local health department when the shortage is expected to affect more than one student.
