Rand Paul doubles down on vaccine stance

Sen. Rand Paul doubled down Monday on his earlier comments that vaccines should be “voluntary,” telling CNBC, “I don’t understand the point of why that would be controversial.” He also alleged he was the victim of media bias.

The remarks of the Kentucky Republican, who is an ophthalmologist by training and a likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate, come as public health officials try to contain an outbreak of measles believed to be fueled in part by a growing number of families refusing to vaccinate their children.
