Under federal law, employers and universities cannot legally mandate COVID vaccines because they are unlicensed Emergency Use Authorization products that are, by definition, experimental.

In Oregon, there are 2 options to claim a nonmedical vaccine exemption, however, this does not cover the COVID-19 vaccine requirements implemented by individual schools and colleges. Although a COVID form is available below, please contact the specific school or college for information about exemptions to COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Both options for other vaccine exemptions require a vaccine education certificate. These can be obtained on the State website.

If you are being required to vaccinate for employment, you can use the Employment Exemption form found on the Now Exempt page.

Church of a Higher Power’s General Exemption Statement:

It is my strong religious belief that I shall not, without consent, add nor subtract anything to or from my body. Forcing this would directly violate the Free Excercise Clause and would strip me of my fundamental right to Religious Liberty.
