Lane County Health Officials are encouraging parents to take advantage of the holiday break by getting their children vaccinated.

Families have several weeks with no school, and for some parents, extended time off. Approximately 30,000 children aren't vaccinated in Oregon, and the primary reason is due to old religious exemptions.

Jason Davis is a spokesman for Lane County Health & Human Services. He says the State ranks first in the nation in allowing the most vaccine exceptions for children, and Lane County is in the top tier.
