Immunization Exclusion Day
HERMISTON - Hermiston School District reminds families that State law requires all students in public and private schools, preschools, certified child care facilities and Head Start have an up to date immunization record or an exemption on file to stay in school. If a student’s record on file shows missing immunizations, the student will not be able to attend school as of Wednesday, February 19, which the state has determined as Exclusion Day.
Parents have until February 18 to bring their student’s immunizations up to date and take missing immunization information to the student’s school. Students will be admitted back to school once immunizations are current.
The Umatilla County Health Department will be holding "Walk-in" clinics on the following dates and locations:
HERMISTON - Thursday, February 13; Friday, February 14, and Thursday, February 20
PENDLETON - Tuesday, February 18 and Wednesday, February 19
The Wellness Clinic, located at Hermiston High School, open on Mondays from 8 a.m.-12 p.m., and Wednesdays from 12-4 p.m. Families may schedule an appointment by calling 541-667-6199.
Families may also schedule an appointment with their provider of choice to ensure their child is not excluded on February 19. Once the child has received his/her immunizations, please take the updated immunization record to the child’s school.
