Measles FAQ

If you think your child might have the measles or was exposed PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE CLINIC WITHOUT FIRST CALLING TO DISCUSS WITH A NURSE OR YOUR MEDICAL PROVIDER. We don’t want others to be exposed. 503-640-2757

  • You can check if your child has had the MMR vaccine by viewing your child’s immunization history via our secure Patient Portal

  • Is your child playing or thinking about playing sports?

    If your child has not had a physical or Well Child Check in the last 12 months they will need to complete one prior to being cleared to play sports. Now is the perfect time to schedule your child’s Well Check to avoid delays in their participation. Our schedules are open for the summer- extended time during the evening is also available, schedule for a time that is convenient for you!
