ROCHESTER, Minn.- DFL Rep. Mike Freiberg is pushing for a new child vaccination law.
He wants parents who are opposed to getting their children vaccinated to have to speak with a physicican before making that decision.
Freiberg says parents need to "have the knowledge and information that will help them make a good choice."
The measles outbreak, which affected 79 people this past summer, has sparked this decision.
A local mother we spoke to agrees with the decision, saying that vaccinating your children not only helps keep them healthy but the community as well.
