Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said that people “have to get their shots.”
He added that vaccinations “are so important.”
Measles in the U.S. has climbed to its highest level in 25 years, hovering around 700 cases this year.
The resurgence of the deadly disease is largely attributed to misinformation that is turning parents against vaccines.
But Trump has previously cast doubt on the effectiveness on vaccinations.
He tweeted several times in 2012 and again in 2014 suggesting, incorrectly, that there could be a link between vaccines and autism in children.

Meanwhile, the NYC Health Department says they have so far issued 38 violations to people in Williamsburg who have not followed the Emergency Order to vaccinate.

“Massive combined inoculations to small children is the cause for big increase in autism….”
President Donald J. Trump. August 23, 2012. Tweet ID 238717783007977473.
“He tweeted several times in 2012 and again in 2014 suggesting, incorrectly, that there could be a link between vaccines and autism in children.”
Who said his suggestions were incorrect?
@IHateCommunism Virtually the entire scientific and medical community.
Virtually the entire scientific and medical community are obviously wrong if POTUS Trump says differently. Any idiot knows that. However as POTUS Trump now says we should all be vaccinated, that is what we must do. A by product of this will be that the immense chillul Hashem now being created may start to abate.
