President Donald Trump on Friday urged Americans to get vaccinated against measles as an outbreak spread across the country, reaching the highest number of cases since 2000.

"Vaccinations are so important," Trump told reporters at the White House. "They have to get their shots."

The start of the measles outbreak has been traced to Orthodox Jews who contracted the highly infectious disease while traveling abroad. Some of them are from communities that oppose getting vaccinations.
