It’s time for children to get their shots. Oregon parents have until Wednesday to bring their immunization records up to date; otherwise their kids will be kept out of school or day care. There are exceptions, according to Stacy Daya-Seese Matthews of Oregon Public Health: “Parents with a strongly held belief against immunization can sign a religious exemption, but they need to understand that there is a risk that their child could be excluded from school in case of a disease outbreak.” About 5000 kids were barred from school or day care a year ago because they didn't meet the deadline. Tune in to KBND Tuesday for Take Five at 7:20, 12:20 and 5:20, as the topic will be the controversy about immunizations.
