KEY DEBATE MOMENT: Glenn Youngkin Says He Won’t Support Requiring Vaccines for Measles, Mumps and Rubella

MCLEAN, VA – During tonight’s debate, Glenn Youngkin said he opposes requiring vaccines for Measles, Mumps and Rubella, a vaccine that has been mandatory for students across Virginia for four decades. Not only does Glenn refuse to require COVID-19 vaccines for health care workers and teachers, he also opposes other already mandated vaccines that keep Virginia children safe. 

Chuck Todd: Do you believe getting vaccinated for measles, rubella, and mumps is a personal choice?

Glenn Youngkin: I think, I think, that the, the, that the, uh…uh…data associated with those vaccines is something that we should absolutely understand the difference between this vaccine. And we have a moment here, we have a moment here to help people understand the real information in this vaccine. So that we could, so that we could…

Chuck Todd: So you would keep those vaccines mandatory but not COVID?

Glenn Youngkin: Those vaccines, those vaccines sh-, can be mandatory. I do believe the COVID vaccine is one everyone should get. But we shouldn’t mandate it.

Glenn Youngkin once again made it clear that he will not follow the science and rejects widely accepted science that has kept children safe for decades. While Virginians already knew that Glenn Youngkin vehemently opposed COVID-19 safety measures, Youngkin told voters tonight that he also opposes mandates for vaccines already required by Virginia’s schools. Glenn Youngkin is an anti-vaccine candidate and will harm Virginia families.
