EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County Health and Human Services will be providing vaccines in a two-day walk-in clinic next week as Exclusion Day approaches.

About 1,600 letters were sent out to parents warning them to update their child's immunization records or they would not be able to attend school next Wednesday.

The number of letters sent is low compared to previous years. However, they still haven't reached the required percentage of vaccines, which is 94 percent.

Dr. Pilar Bradshaw of Eugene Pediatrics Associates asked parents how they would feel knowing their unvaccinated child could directly cause harm to another person's child.

"Please vaccinate your children," Bradshaw said. "We know that if you vaccinate kids, not only does it protect your child, for example in a case like the measles outbreak that's currently happening in the northwest, but it also is important for protecting our whole community."

The clinic will be held between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 19, and Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the Lane County Health & Human Services Charnelton Building, 151 West 7th Avenue. Walk-in appointments are accepted.
