Jewish children get off a Yeshiva school bus in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn New York on Tuesday
13 April, 2019, 00:17
In Williamsburg, where there have been 285 cases since September, health authorities have ordered mandatory vaccines. This comes as the number of confirmed measles cases continues to rise in Rockland County, and health officials on Tuesday ordered almost everyone in a heavily Orthodox Jewish New York City neighborhood to be vaccinated for measles or face fines. Most of these cases were found in unvaccinated or partially unvaccinated people, a majority of whom are children.
The kids, who were not vaccinated, appear to have been exposed to measles in Rockland County and Brooklyn where there have been ongoing outbreaks.
"That is the defining experience which is what it may take to break through with those who are not vaccinating their children", he added. The virus spread from there. There have been thousands upon thousands of studies reaffirming the effectiveness and safety of vaccines, and disproving the theory of vaccines being connected to the development of autism. "The measles vaccine works".
Health officials have made robocalls urging vaccination to more than 30,000 Williamsburg households and have stocked health care providers in the community with an ample supply of vaccine, Palacio said.
It can lead to death, brain swelling and pneumonia.
Measles is highly contagious, and nine out of 10 people who are not immune and are exposed to measles will become infected. His father has a doctor's office in the area.
"I don't expect that people are running out [to get vaccinated]. Our religion says that you should do it", he said across the street from the Yeshiva Kehilath Yakov school. The health department has threatened to close these yeshivas if they do not comply.
"You will not find rabbis citing Jewish law to say people should not be vaccinated", he said, stressing that his federation, like other Jewish organizations, encourages vaccination.
However some locals, like Miriam, 66, are anxious about how the outbreak may affect their family members.
Anyone who visited the property outside that timeframe is not at risk from that particular exposure, health officials said. "He called me yesterday afternoon to tell me", she said of her son. People can spread measles before they even know they are sick. Miriam's daughter doesn't want to vaccinate her children, she said, because she is anxious about the vaccines affecting brain function.
Begun said he believes the city's vaccination order will be effective. As a result, it has been too easy for misinformation about vaccines to take root and spread, because parents have the luxury of fearing the vaccines instead of the diseases.
Anyone who would like to receive a vaccine at one of these clinics should register in advance for an appointment at www.health.ny.gov/gotoclinic/60.
"I think it's a great idea", said Ruppert, the health commissioner. She suggested that maybe parents should be compelled to homeschool their children, emphasizing the risk to the community. "Now the schools just send the children home if they're sick, and that's the right thing to do", said Rachel, a Williamsburg resident, who also wished not to give her last name. The change is contained in an amendment to a bill they had previously introduced to tighten the state's vaccination policy; lawmakers approved the revised plan in January, despite passionate testimony from people concerned about the push to reduce parental choice.
