Parents in New York City Are Throwing Measles Parties

In response to the initial test results, the health department warned the public of possible measles exposure at a community center, a restaurant and an athletic club.

Meanwhile, the Rockland County outbreak is believed to have exposed children in Westchester County.

At a time when Rockland County is attempting to get a grip on the measles epidemic and efforts to convince unvaccinated residents to get the MMR shots, new cases of the virus have been confirmed in adjacent counties. "And the reason the city government is empowered in a public health emergency is to save lives". The disease is transmitted when people who have not been vaccinated come into contact with others, so areas around worldwide airports or proximity to communities who shun vaccines are of particular concern. Most of these cases were found in unvaccinated or partially unvaccinated people, a majority of whom are children.

Authorities will carry out the order by interviewing Williamsburg residents who have been diagnosed with measles and then interviewing everyone who those people have come in contact with.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city would require unvaccinated individuals living in Williamsburg and Borough Park to receive the vaccine as the city fights one of the largest measles outbreaks in decades. "Most people do vaccinate their kids, it has nothing to do with religion". "Even the hospital didn't know what it was at first, but now they figured it out".

The federal investigation began as an offshoot of the Mueller probe that was later handed off to Manhattan federal prosecutors. Tymoshenko was a political opponent of then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych , who was a longtime Manafort patron.

"We try always to respect religious rights, religious customs, but when it comes to public health, when we see a problem emerge, we have to deal with it aggressively", de Blasio said. "Our goal is to get people vaccinated".

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. But they said they were taking additional steps to control the outbreak in advance of Passover, when some families may travel overseas to areas in Israel or Europe that are experiencing measles outbreaks.

Parents are said to be encouraging their unvaccinated children to get the virus from each other to help them build immunity.

"Utahns don't need to panic, but rather carefully consider their vaccination status", she said, adding it isn't too late to get the vaccine. "You have a larger pool of babies". Miriam, who also didn't want to give her name due to privacy concerns, said everyone should be vaccinated. "I don't think they should be getting fined, I think another penalty should be given", said Charlette Hamlin, 36, who is in favor of vaccinations for all.

Westchester County announced on Wednesday that eight local children, six of whom are siblings, and all are from Northern Westchester, have been confirmed to have measles.
