Measles outbreak: Trump tells Americans to ‘get their shots’ – BBC News

President Trump has told Americans to “get their shots” as measles cases spread across the country.

“The vaccinations are so important,” he told reporters outside the White House.

Nearly 700 cases have been reported across 22 states amid a resurgence of the highly infectious disease, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says.

Mr Trump has previously appeared to link vaccines and autism. Public health experts say there is no link.
