State Law Makes It Illegal For Oregon Employers To Require Vaccinations

(Portland, OR) -- Kaiser Permanente employees working in Oregon are exempt from the company's requirement to get vaccinated. A 1989 state law makes Oregon the only state in the country where it's illegal to require vaccinations for employees. The company, meanwhile, says they are working with the Oregon Health Authority and the governor to support vaccinations "to the fullest extent permitted by law." At least one representative with the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems says they believe the state law should be amended amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
