Child Vaccination Rates Down In Oregon

By Jim McCoy Tue 8th May Newschildren's vaccinationshealth

More parents in Oregon are choosing not to have their children vaccinated against diseases.The trend has been rising for a dozen years and KATU reports kindergarteners this school year had a religious exemption for at least one vaccine.
     That's a concern for health officials watching a whooping cough
epidemic in Washington where more than 1,000 cases have been
reported this year. Oregon has had 156 cases of whooping cough
reported this year.
     Oregon parents can sign a form and send their kids to schools
without all of their vaccines.
