For years, Dr. Jim Shames, a physician who prefers a down vest to a lab coat, has argued the benefits of vaccines with Harding, his next-door neighbor.
As Jackson County's chief medical officer, Shames would like every child immunized. Ashland always has some whooping cough around, which can be devastating to babies, but has seen no spike in measles. Still, Shames fears the community is vulnerable because so many international visitors come to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University.
Shames has been working with nursing students from Oregon Health & Science University on a pamphlet that would promote immunization.

Dr. Jim Shames, Jackson County's medical officer, said the virus, continues to be active, not just here, but all across the United States.
Shames said health officials expect the H1N1 virus to return next fall, during flu season, and it could be more infectious than other viruses because it is a new strain, and humans have developed no immunity to it. The virus is also likely to infect more young people, and some of them will most likely get sicker than they would from ordinary influenza.
Shames noted that Oregon's summer is flu season in the Southern Hemisphere, and public health officials have been watching the virus' behavior there. So far, it has not been especially severe, he said.
Shames encouraged people to spend some time now thinking about how they would organize their daily affairs if they, or their children become seriously ill with the virus in the fall.

Ashland's rate of exemptions from some or all vaccinations is five times higher than the county and state average, said Dr. Jim Shames, Jackson County's public health medical officer.
Ashland families have a vaccine exemption rate of 24.4 percent, compared to a county and state rate of 3 to 5 percent, said Shames. Similar pockets of vaccine doubters can be found in the Illinois Valley and Lane County.
Shames said he and his department have conducted much research to learn the concerns of the Ashland community and "the school nurses have done a good job of educating parents and making vaccines available."

A friend of Don's asked a mutual friend, Dr. Jim Shames, medical director for Jackson County Health and Human Services, to help him. Don said Shames urged him to see Sills.
Shames said the use of Suboxone for opiate withdrawal is effective and is used by Allied Health Services on about 100 patients at the Medford methadone clinic.
