    SALEM, Ore. - Oregon parents have until Wednesday to get their children vaccinated in order to be able to attend public schools.

    February 20 is exclusion day which means that means if a child does not have the correct immunizations or have an exemption by then, they will not be allowed to go to school.

    Oregon has the highest rate of children who are legally exempt from school vaccination requirements in the country.

    Parents can currently cite personal, religious and medical reasons for not vaccinating their kids.

    State lawmakers are currently considering legislation that would make it harder for parents to opt their kids out of getting vaccines.
