During his visit to Columbus on Wednesday, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy had a message for parents: ‘vaccinate your children’

The statement comes as the country is looking at increased reports of the spread of measles and the country engages in a discussion largely centered on parents who choose not to have their kids immunized out of fears of side effects from those vaccinations.
