While COCC or OSU-Cascades do not require vaccines, 15 states have passed legislation requiring certain vaccinations


Nathaniel Kelly The Broadside Freshmen students and continuing students at Central Oregon Community College and Oregon State University-Cascades campus will not be required to be vaccinated against diseases. Many colleges in the United States are now requiring students to get immunized before they are allowed to register for classes. “Vaccinations required of incoming students: the TDP (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussiss) series. HPV (human papiloma virus), polio, MMR series, chicken pox, hepatitis A, and a tuberculosis test” said Elizabeth Kitchen, a contributor to the Associated Content website. “Colleges are now requiring incoming freshmen to be vac-

cinated against deadly diseases across the country. Portland State University is now requiring vaccinations, but COCC and OSU-Cascades in Bend, Oregon are not requiring vaccinations to incoming college freshmen,” according to a KTVZ news broadcast aired on October 4th. Universities and colleges will provide students with a list of vaccines or immunizations required. Though the News Channel 21 broadcast states that immunizations for incoming freshmen or returning students at the campus are not required, many of the allied health programs offered on campus require immunizations.

At a three day Oregon Community College Student Associations retreat, some student government members drank alcohol, skipped sessions from the conference and questionably spent allocated student fee money. All six members in attendance

used student fee money to pay for at least one meal and five rented individual hotel rooms at the Vernonia Inn, despite food and lodging being included in the $120 per person registration fee. Two of the hotel rooms offered Jacuzzis. Some left the conference to go to the Oregon coast, twice. “I was absolutely flabbergasted by their behavior,” said Jenni Jackson, the advisor to the Associated Student Government

of Rogue Community College. “Their performance wasn’t the best… they weren’t at the trainings, most of them just left.” The student leadership retreat happened before the legal struggle with the college regarding fiscal accountability and issues surrounding the Associated Students of Central Oregon Community College’s autonomy from the college.
