REFILE-Trump urges Americans to get measles vaccine

(Corrects day of announcement in paragraph 2 to Thursday, not Tuesday)

WASHINGTON, April 26 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday urged Americans to protect themselves with the measles vaccination as the number of cases of the once-eradicated disease hit the highest levels in the United States since 2000.

The growing outbreak in pockets across the country has triggered multiple public health investigations seeking to limit exposure to measles. On Thursday, officials in California announced quarantines at two universities in Los Angeles. (Reporting by Jeff Mason and Makini Brice Writing by Susan Heavey Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
