<p>In the future we are planning a move to OR from WA.  Here in WA we are able to decline vax for philosophical reasons.  I am suprised OR does not allow that.  So it looks like we will have to do a religious exemption for DD to attend school?  Does anyone know how hard/easy it is to do that in Oregon? We are not moving for awhile but I want to do all my research first.  Thanks!</p>

<p>It's easy in Oregon.  You just sign the second page of this form.</p>

<p>Before you sign it, they want you to read this brochure. </p>

<p>Does it matter if...we are not really religious?  Do we have to specify a religion or prove it?</p>
