NY measles outbreak spreads to more counties

A woman opposed to childhood vaccinations takes part in a demonstration after officials in Rockland County a New York City suburb banned children not vaccinated against measles from public spaces in West Nyack New York

This is New York City Mayor de Blasio announcing the new measures Tuesday. Miriam, who also didn't want to give her name due to privacy concerns, said everyone should be vaccinated.

Anyone who has not been vaccinated in Westchester may call the health department for a free injection - 914-995-5800 for an appointment.

"This is a public health emergency", the Democratic mayor said. Two hundred eighty-five cases have been confirmed in New York City since the fall.

In March, state health officials banned unvaccinated children from attending schools, visiting shopping malls, and even occupying public places in Rockland County. The Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is safe and highly effective in preventing measles cases and containing outbreaks.

"I join the physicians of our state in urging all parents to immunize their children on time as per the (federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) schedule and not just in times of crisis", the rabbi said.

From Jan. 1 to April 4, 465 measles cases were confirmed in 19 USA states, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. "If we're not getting vaccinated, we're putting other people at risk". More than 465 cases have been recorded nationwide since the start of the year. "Our goal is to get people vaccinated".

Measles easily spreads through sneezes and coughs and can live on some surfaces for up to two hours after contamination. He claimed the vaccine was linked to autism and bowel disease. And so they're subjecting their children to a painful illness with high fevers and rash that has already hospitalized 10 percent of those who've contracted it in NY, including five who were serious enough to need intensive care. Majority of them didn't die but they were admitted to the hospital.

Public health is important, Lane continued, but it shouldn't restrict someone's ability to refuse medical treatment.

Dr Oxiris Barbot, the New York City health commissioner, said there had been reports of "measles parties" in the area in which parents deliberately expose their children to measles so that they become naturally immune after contracting the virus.

Indeed, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was quick to declare the city's action "legally questionable" and "a serious First Amendment issue" - though his failure to suggest any practical alternative suggests this was mostly his usual automatic dumping-on-de Blasio.

But Michael Weinstein, director of the New Jersey Immunization Network, called the mayor's move "the right thing to do", given the high case numbers and population density in NY.

"So far, we've been spared the outbreak", Anderson said.

The city's action "puts the correct spotlight on this", he said, adding, "There was a need for a little shake-up here".
