Two additional cases were confirmed in Sullivan County.

The children, who are between the ages of six months and 14 years old, hail from Bedford and Mount Kisco.

But a dozen parents of public school students sued the county, arguing that the measure was disproportionate to the danger, particularly as there have been no deaths to date. Six of the children are siblings. Although written two years ago, the position was only recently made public, an apparent acknowledgment of the heightening health problems created by the unvaccinated. Anyone who is unsure about his/her or their child's vaccination status can work with their health care provider's office or school to obtain their vaccination records.

"I'm concerned but I'm not at a point of crisis mobilization", Latimer said.

Since October, each case has been systematically investigated to determine how many people have been exposed to the ultracontagious virus.

City health officials declined to comment on the mayor's order. "We are not at that point today".

Signed by New York's health commissioner, the emergency declaration mandates that everyone in those zipcodes receive a measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, or face a $1,000 penalty.

Williamsburg, Brooklyn is in the midst of the country's largest measles outbreak-but residents are still split on what should be done.

The biggest issue has been measles, which is incredibly contagious and spreads easily to those who aren't vaccinated.

Authorities said they are now reviewing a bill to ensure that only patients with a qualified medical history like chemotherapy or organ transplantation will be given an exemption.

Dozens of free vaccination clinics have been organized around the county - including one Friday in the town of Haverstraw - with 17,654 doses of vaccine administered to date. Coffey said that a Google search of the MMR vaccine can lead to YouTube videos of deadly aftermaths of vaccines that are purely inaccurate. "And it's better to be safe than sorry".

Measles symptoms start with a fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat.

Authorities said the city health department will seek to interview Williamsburg residents who have been diagnosed with measles and everyone they have come in contact with. "He called me yesterday afternoon to tell me", she said of her son.

"It lasts in the air for hours after that person leaves the room", Amler said. "If we're not getting vaccinated, we're putting other people at risk". We all have our individual rights guaranteed to us under the Constitution. "When that happens, then the public health always has to be put at the highest premium".

Begun said he believes the city's vaccination order will be effective. Before researchers developed a vaccine, this disease once affected millions in the USA and hospitalized tens of thousands every year. But for many others who haven't yet gotten their children immunized, this may prove decisive, she said. Miriam, who also didn't want to give her name due to privacy concerns, said everyone should be vaccinated.
