Senator Schumer Fights for Free Measles Vaccines and Booster Shots
Monday, February 9, 2015 6:41 PM EST
Cracking down on measles, Senator Schumer is calling on the CDC to make measles vaccines and booster shots free.
The senator wants the CDC to make the vaccine readily available and not just the measle shot.
The senator is pushing for free mumps and rubella shots as well.
This includes providing the vaccine in schools and health clinics.
According to the CDC 121 people in the US were reported to have measles between January 1st and February 6th this year.
Most of those cases stemmed from a multi-state outbreak linked to an amusement park in California.
