Oregon House Passes Vaccination Bill But Representative Jason Conger Votes Against It


The House passed the bill 45 to 15.  

 

State law requires students in public shcools to be immunzied against diseases like polio and measles.

 

 Yet nearly 6 percent of Oregon kids opt out of these vacciantions.

 

State Representative Jason Conger of Bend voted against the bill.

 

"To me it's a strange intrusion into parentl lrights without justification.  It seems to me there's a misunderstanding with policy makers.  The necessity driving it -- doesn't exist."

 

The exemption rate in Deschtues County has gone from half a percent to 8 percent between 2000 and 2013.
