We've had three cases of measles recently and Jefferson County is seeing about six cases of whooping cough.


Earlier this year, the Oregon legislature passed a law that would make it more difficult for parents to seek vaccination exemptions.  


In order to get these exemptions, for anything besides a medical reason, parents need to hear from a health professional, the risks of doing so.


Dr. Paul Cieslak with the Oregon Public Health Division says he feels it will address some of parents concerns.


"It's going to be another hoop they have to jump through.  We're hopeful parents who are opposed to vaccines, but just have questions, will find this information helpful and will be reassured about the safety and values of vaccines."


Dr. Ciselak says it will be a year from now before we really know whether this law will make a difference in our vaccination rates.


Currently 6 percent of kindergartners in Oregon don't get the required vaccinations.
