Q: Is it true that Oregon makes parents jump through hoops before claiming a religious exemption for vaccines?

A: Yes, parents must meet one of two tests before their religious (or other non-medical) exemption takes effect.

As of last March, parents need to demonstrate that they are aware of the medical consequences of their exemption based on non-medical reasons. This can take the form of  documentation from a health care practitioner showing that they have discussed the risks and benefits of vaccines, or it can take the form of a certificate proving they had watched an online interactive educational module on the risks and benefits of vaccines.
