immunizations
By The Skanner News

Multnomah will hold two immunization clinics for children who are uninsured or under-insured to catch up on their vaccinations before the Feb. 15, 2017 school exclusion date.

This week, letters were mailed to about 8,000 families in Multnomah County to inform them that their children must be immunized. The letters are the final notice to parents of children in public, private and alternative schools, preschools, Head Start programs, kindergartens and child care facilities. Approximately 124,000 children and students in Multnomah County must meet the state immunization requirements.

In 2016, fewer than 1 percent of children and students were actually sent home because their vaccination records were incomplete.

There will be a clinic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 11 at the David Douglas Old District Administration Building, 1500 SE 130th Ave. and one from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 15 at the East County Services Building in the Sharon Kelley Room, 600 NE 8th St. Gresham.
