The state of Oregon has been concerned for the past few years about families keeping their children up -to-date on vaccinations. Each year, the Oregon Department of Health releases a population-based report that details which areas are on top of their vaccines and which are falling behind. The Oregon Department of Health releases this report so that its citizens and its medical community can see which areas need of the state need better information, education and grant money.

In November of 2011, the state of Oregon began to streamline the process of a doctor's visit by going to paperless medical offices. This makes each office visit go much quicker, which means that more patients can be seen.

About Oregon

Oregon is the 33rd state, admitted to the Union on February 14, 1859. The coastal cities and towns enjoy beautiful views of the deep blue pacific ocean, and inland cities and towns benefit from the big wilderness and wildlife surrounding them.

The biggest complaint about Oregon is the rainy weather, and that there is not a lot of sunshine during the year, especially on the coastline. Though inland gets more sunshine throughout the year, it is still very dreary.

The residents are very liberal and politically oriented to the left, and Oregon is considered a "blue state." Social programs and outreach play a large part in Oregon's social makeup. It is also a very expensive state. The overall cost of living index for Oregon is 115 compared to the national index of 100. The cost of food index is at 101, utilities are at a less expensive 88, and other services and expenses are at 104.

The residents of Oregon range from elite, highly educated academic scholars to the very poor. Homelessness is one of the largest problems Oregon faces, particularly in the larger, urban areas, such as Portland.

Many people visit Oregon for the historical preservation and wildlife conservation efforts. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the Crater Lake National Park, full of hiking trails that lead to breathtaking views. Those looking for an exploration of wildlife that isn't too close for comfort visit places like the Oregon Coast Aquarium or The Oregon Zoo.

Other attractions throughout Oregon include the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the High Desert Museum, Portland Children's Museum, and Multnomah Falls. One of the more famous attractions that draws thousands of visitors from all over is the Astoria Column, which has 164 steps to the top, and offers a large, panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River, the Astoria-Megler Bridge, and mountains of Washington.

Housing in Oregon varies from luxury homes and mansions to small, very cheap housing. Luxury spas and resorts, very expensive hotels, and very cheap hostels are also available. Campgrounds and RV Parks are also common places to stay throughout the state.
