GOP's Christie: parents should have choice in vaccinations

Posted:

CAMBRIDGE, England (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that parents should have some choice when it comes to vaccinating their children in the wake of a measles outbreak in California.

Christie on Monday disagreed with President Barack Obama, who in a Sunday interview urged all parents to vaccinate their kids.

The Republican governor, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, said that he and his wife vaccinated their kids. But, he said, parents need to have some measure of choice as well.

Christie made the comments while traveling in the United Kingdom on a foreign trade mission.

He also criticized Obama as an "ineffective" negotiator on the world stage.
