McConnell: ‘I’m a Big Fan of Vaccinations’

Amid a national debate over vaccinations following a measles outbreak that began in California, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell came out in support of vaccinations at his weekly news conference Tuesday.

“As a victim of polio myself, I’m a big fan of vaccinations and if I were a parent who had a child who might be subject to getting any particular disease, I would come down on the side of vaccination,” McConnell said.
