The Oregon Health Authority is urging parents of University of Oregon students to get their kids vaccinated against meningococcal disease.
A sixth case at the Eugene campus has been confirmed and one student has died.
Heather Kaisner with the Deschutes County Health Deaprtment says its in students best interest to get vaccinated.
"So the Oregon Health Authority has put out an alert to get all U of O students to get the meningococcal B vaccine. This has been going on the last few weeks and there have been lots of clinics in Eugene offering this vaccine."
Kaisner says students can get the vaccine at most Safeway and Walgreens pharmacies.
So far, nine thousand U of O students have been vaccinated, but their goal is to get all 22-thousand undergraduate students vaccinated.
