Author and presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson says she's "fine" with schools requiring children to get vaccines before they can attend.

The Democratic presidential candidate was pressed on her position on vaccines at a forum of union workers in Las Vegas. She has faced pushback for suggesting recently the government shouldn't be able to tell anyone what to do with their children. She later said she misspoke.

Williamson later told reporters she would, as president, tell parents to have their children vaccinated. She also says she would boost funding for the Food and Drug Administration to do "independent reviews" of drugs including vaccines. She's expressing distrust with pharmaceutical companies and the way they review and promote drugs.

Williamson also says the job of the president is to be a moral leader and that she would select a vice president who understands the workings of Washington.
