Actress Kristen Bell is making it clear she has little room for vaccine doubters in her life.
As the measles outbreak puts the spotlight on parents who refuse to vaccinate their children, the “Frozen” star wants fans to know she has no such hesitations.
“It’s a very simple logic: I believe in trusting doctors, not know-it-alls,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
Bell and her husband Dax Shepard have two daughters: Lincoln, born in 2013, and Delta, who arrived in December. The couple insists that visitors who want to see the girls must first get a shot.
“When Lincoln was born, the whooping cough epidemic was growing, and before she was 2 months old, we simply said [to friends], ‘You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby,'” Bell told the newspaper.
Bell said she’s taking the same approach with baby Delta. The actress has been tweeting about the importance of vaccines since the measles outbreak began.
