Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he “absolutely” thinks kids should be vaccinated for measles and doesn’t think there’s any credible evidence that, as some opponents of vaccinations say, vaccinations cause autism.

Rubio’s comments on Tuesday come a day after two potential 2016 candidates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), both suggested there was something to the arguments of parents who don’t want to vaccinate their kids.
