EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County Public Health is holding a two-day walk-in immunization clinic as the deadline for exclusion day fast approaches.

Schools need to know if their students are up to date on their vaccines by Feb. 20.

Lane County health officials said they sent out just over 1,600 letters to parents to let them know their children need an update. They said they have seen a steady flow of clients coming in to get their shots.

"It was kind of convenient having this today because the appointments I got weren't till late March," said Margarita Alvarez, who got her three children vaccinated.

The walk-in clinics started on Tuesday and will continue on Wednesday. They are held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m at Lane County Health & Human Services Charnelton Building, 151 W. 7th Ave.
