Temporary and Proposed Administrative Rule Amendments
The Oregon Immunization Program is amending Chapter 333, Division 47 of the administrative rules to delete any reference to the Vaccine User Accountability Reporting Table. This table laid out an implementation timeline that is now unnecessary. Additionally, wording is being added to clarify that all vaccine inventory must be managed through the ALERT Immunization Information System.
The Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division is proposing to permanently adopt OAR 333-003-5000 and OAR 333-047-2000, relating to COVID-19 vaccine guidance and minor consent requirements. These proposed permanent rules will replace temporary rules set to expire on November 22, 2021.
The public is invited to review and comment on the proposed rules. If you wish to present oral testimony,
a public hearing will be held remotely by video or phone conference call via Microsoft Teams on October 20, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. To provide oral testimony during this hearing, please contact

The Oregon Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division temporarily adopted OAR 333-047-2000, relating to requirements for COVID-19 vaccine administration sites. This temporary rule is effective July 9, 2021 through November 22, 2021 and replaces OAR 333-047-2000 filed and effective May 27, 2021 (Temporary Administrative Order PH 21-2021)
Recently, Oregon passed legislation allowing dentists to vaccinate their patients. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is aware of several large dental practices gearing up to provide this service, and anticipates a slow but steady increase in participating providers over the coming years. The
Oregon Administrative Rules for dentists and vaccine are now available.
Immunization Laws and Rules
Oregon laws are defined in the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS). Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) determine how those laws are implemented.
