It’s a time that parents dread every year; it's immunization time for back to school. Heather Kaisner with Deschutes County Health says it's very important to get your child immunized because some old diseases we thought were eradicated are making a comeback. "In Deschutes County, we've not had any measles cases, but worldwide we're seeing outbreaks of measles, especially in Europe, and in pockets within the U.S. and we have higher cases than we've ever had since 1996. So it's definitely a concern. People travel all over there's a lot of people coming here for a vacation. So it's even more important, especially that MMR vaccine." Kaisner says they are holding a back to school walk in clinic the week of August 29th on different days at various school based health centers. You can find those days and locations on the Deschutes County Health Department website.
