7:18 am
until a year of age and people haven't been vaccinated. pregnant women are worrisome with the spread of this disease. >> still so many parents are not convinced. what can you say? what can you do to convince them that this is very crucial? >> to me, it's the same thing that happened with smoking. it's that it was hard to get our country to stop smoking but once the secondhand smoke argument came out, you're not affecting you, but the people near you or around you. it made an impact. the same is true here. you don't vaccinate your child, you can kill another child besides the ramifications of your own child. the secondhand effect here, we have to push on and as a community, protect each other and do it through data and science. the measles vaccine works. >> all right. thank you. i hope you touched somebody this morning to make a different decision. amazon caught 3 billion suspicious listings on its site last year. ahead in the first on camera interview about the crackdown,
