Lincoln County Public Health wants parents to know that children who are not up to date on all of their required immunizations will not be able to attend school or child care facilities on or after Wednesday, Feb. 20. State law requires all children enrolled in public and private schools, preschools, Head Starts and certified child care facilities to be vaccinated against certain preventable diseases.
Parents whose children are not up to date on all required immunizations will receive an Immunization Exclusion Order in the mail and their children will not be allowed to attend school or day care facilities beginning on Feb. 20 until their immunizations are up-to-date. Only children whose parents have filed valid religious or medical exemptions are excused from the rule.For the complete article see the 02-13-2013 issue.
