Once a common childhood disease, measles has been drastically reduced over the decades through immunizations, which the medical profession generally considers safe, effective and critically important. "The faster everyone heeds the order, the faster we can lift it".
Preventing the spread of measles requires about 95 percent of a population to be properly vaccinated with the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, usually starting with the first dose at 12 months through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years old. Violators could face a fine of $1,000, officials said. Now the question is how officials intend to enforce that demand.

"As Passover is coming up, it's important that all New Yorkers get vaccinated especially if they plan to travel overseas to Europe or Israel". "This is a public health emergency".
"There's nothing in Talmudic law that prohibits vaccination", said Barbot.
There have been 285 cases in the area since 30 September. "There's always going to be fresh victims for this virus to find", he said. Without elaborating on the means, de Blasio promised help would be available for those who needed it. "They have been spreading risky misinformation based on fake science", Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot said in statement.
"There are many more individuals who are living with chronic diseases, who are surviving cancer, and so we don't want children or adults to be unnecessarily exposed to measles".
