'Get those records up to date': Vaccination 'Exclusion Day' at Oregon schools


EUGENE, Ore. - Exclusion Day was on Wednesday for students in Oregon – which means if a student doesn’t have documentation of required vaccines or an exemption, then the student can’t attend school.

Lane County Public Health reported 95 percent of students have been vaccinated. It also sent out letters warning parents of Exclusion Day.

“Families whose students were excluded will be contacted again, and staff work to provide ways for students to get immunization or get those records up to date,” said Kerry Delf with the 4J Eugene School District.

Parents who choose not to vaccinate their student can take an online course module to excuse their student from getting vaccines.
