Here's When You Can Get A Free Measles Vaccine In Westchester

  • Measles mumps and rubella vaccines are seen in a cooler at the Rockland County Health Department in Pomona New York earlier this year

In the face of this crisis, schools in Washington and NY are keeping unvaccinated children out of classes, and Rockland County executive Ed May declared that they should be barred from all public places in the county.

A state judge sided with Mr. Sussman and the parents, issuing a preliminary injunction against the county's emergency order.

The city can't legally physically force someone to get a vaccination, but officials said people who ignore the order could be fined $1,000.

A lawyer is poised to file a lawsuit challenging the order this week.

Two of the children were hospitalized but have since been released, said Dr. Sherlita Amler, Westchester County health commissioner.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the unusual order amid what he said was a measles crisis in Brooklyn's Williamsburg section, where more than 250 people have gotten measles since September. Those who refused to get immunized within 48 hours will risk receiving violation tickets or incurring fines of $1,000. A volunteer at the city's measles hotline said people who called in were being encouraged to get inoculations and report on whether they know people who recently had or now have the measles. The ultra-Orthodox communities of the county are the most affected by the measles outbreak according to the New York Times.

The city has ceaselessly worked over the past year to raise awareness about Measles vaccinations. Some of those who've succumbed to the illness have been purposely infected with the disease, as parents in parts of New York City have been hosting "measles parties" to help spread the illness from those already infected to those who haven't been vaccinated. "Our goal is to get people vaccinated".

City health officials declined to comment on the mayor's order. Yet since then, there have been years when the number of cases has surged, notably in 2014, when 667 were reported - the highest annual total since the turn of the century. "And for decades that vaccine policy has been largely effective". Under the code, the health commissioner has the authority to declare public health emergencies and take reasonable action "necessary for the health and safety" to protect against an existing threat. "We have to protect our kids and our families", de Blasio said.

David R. Curry, executive director of the Center for Vaccine Ethics and Policy, told China Daily: "Once your child is exposed and has measles, there is no better convincing argument to parents who may be questioning whether vaccinations work than when they have to come to grips with the fact that their child, because they were unvaccinated, suddenly has a potentially unsafe disease". Miriam's daughter doesn't want to vaccinate her children, she said, because she is anxious about the vaccines affecting brain function. As of Wednesday there were 173 confirmed reported cases of measles in Rockland County.

By the time the vaccines were administered, the measles outbreak in Philadelphia was subsiding - after nine children had died, including six from Faith Tabernacle.
