Christie: Parents Shouldn’t Be Able to Op Out of Vaccinating Children



New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says parents “can’t count on” him to support opting out of vaccines for their children. Christie told New Hampshire residents during a town-hall meeting that “vaccines have done an enormous good in this country to eradicate” illnesses and “public health has to be paramount.”

His comments marked a slight shift in tone from earlier this year, when he said, “All I can say is that we vaccinate [our children], and so that’s the best expression I can give you as my opinion. That’s what we do, but I also understand that parents need to have some measure of choice in things as well. So that’s the balance that the government has to decide.” Read more at
