New York City orders mandatory measles vaccines for some

New York City threatens to close yeshivas over unvaccinated children

New York City's health commissioner has declared a public health emergency over a major measles outbreak in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, with 250 cases documented in the area since September 2018.

What about the nationwide outbreak?

As part of the emergency order, all residents of four Williamsburg zip codes - 11205, 11206, 11211 and 11249 - must be vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella if they are not already.

The city's largest measles outbreak since 1991 has mainly been confined to the Orthodox Jewish community in the borough of Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighbourhood, with 285 cases confirmed since October, de Blasio said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Health officials made a specific point to condemn the resurgence of "measles parties", get-togethers where parents gather unvaccinated children with kids already suffering with measles in order to intentionally infect the group at a young age. It is safe, it is effective, it is time-tested.

He is in the previous year of his contract and if he has another decision then we have to respect it. "But it's not easy". The Argentina global , 31, joined the Blues on loan until the end of the season from Italian giants Juventus in January.

De Blasio's vaccination order applies to all people, including children over six months old, who may have been exposed to the virus. Even now, 1 in 4 people who get measles end up hospitalized.

The order is signed to remain in effect until the next meeting of the New York City Board of Health on April 17 at which time "it may be continued or rescinded by the board". "We have to stop it now".

Schlesinger is trying to reverse false information being spread about the measles vaccine through the Orthodox community. Schools that don't comply face fines and closure.

Most of the NY cases involved unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated individuals, according to De Blasio's office.

Health officials have been urging New Yorkers to get their children vaccinated to stem the outbreak of measles, which is a highly contagious disease that can cause pneumonia, encephalitis, and death.

"We're making clear that unvaccinated students will not be allowed in schools or day cares", de Blasio said.

"This is the epicenter of a measles outbreak that is very, very troubling and must be dealt with immediately", de Blasio said.

New York City on Tuesday declared a public health emergency and ordered mandatory measles vaccinations amid an outbreak, becoming the latest national flashpoint over refusals to inoculate against unsafe diseases.

NY has contended with measles outbreaks and the legal challenges that have arisen in efforts to contain them.

The decision can be vetoed by any of the other 27 member states. "I was just surprised - we're still members of the EU". Labour is pushing for a much closer post-Brexit alliance with the EU that includes participation in a customs union.
