House Bill 3276 Task Force Report

At the direction of the legislature, the Oregon Health Authority’s Oregon Immunization Program convened a Task Force to make recommendations for improvements in student health insurance coverage and preventing the spread of disease during an outbreak, epidemic or other condition of public health importance.

  • Vaccinating our families according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended immunization schedules not only protects our loved ones, but our entire community as well. 
  • Improving immunization rates is one of seven priority areas from Oregon's State Health Improvement Plan.
  • Meet Oregon's 2017 CDC Childhood Immunization Champion, Jacie Zahler.
