LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County School District is combing through vaccination records after the recent measles outbreak at Disneyland. Letters have been sent to parents whose children don't have the required immunizations.
Students are only exempt if they have a religious or medical exemption on file with the district. The district is giving students a few weeks to update their records or they won't be allowed back in school.
At 3 years old, Santiago is just months away from having to get his next set of vaccinations.
"He cries a lot," said his mother Karen Ponce. "It's a pain, it's a pain."
But it's a pain this mom is willing to endure.
Per sate law, Santiago must have updated shots to attend pre-k or kindergarten
"He doesn't understand, you know, and we know that we have to do it," she said.
