Measles outbreak causes health hysteria

Measles outbreak 2019 NYC NYC's New Policy on Measles Vaccine Prompts Renewed Focus in NJ

But city health officials say they have they have struck the right balance with the unusual order, and they hope a mixture of outreach and prodding will overcome resistance to vaccines in a slice of the predominantly Orthodox Jewish community hardest hit by the disease.

"When you make the decision not to vaccinate your child, please understand you're also making that decision for the people around your child", warned Palacio, who said her services had received reports of so-called "measles parties" held to purposely expose children to the disease. People who refuse the vaccine or who refuse to get their children vaccinated could be fined, though de Blasio said he hoped to avoid levying any fines.

Like most USA states - all but three, including California - New York requires a series of vaccinations for school-age children but grants exemptions on both medical and religious grounds.

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.

New York City's effort to halt a measles outbreak by ordering mandatory vaccinations in one Brooklyn neighborhood is facing opposition, with lawyers for parents opposed to vaccinations promising to file a lawsuit challenging the order by Friday. The number of cases, especially in these two regions are 285 since October. Two of the infected children developed pneumonia and had to be hospitalized as a result. In America, we also support the idea of individualism, and many consider vaccinations a personal choice.

The measles outbreak has highlighted the issues of municipalities forcing citizens to get vaccinated.

Measles is a highly contagious virus that causes fever, rash, cough, runny nose, and red, watery eyes.

"I don't expect that people are running out [to get vaccinated]".

In 27 years of practicing medicine, Ruppert said, this is "one of the most challenging health crises I have had to deal with".

The CDC blames measles outbreaks across the United States on two factors: an increase in the number of people who bring measles into the country from overseas and pockets of unvaccinated people living here.

"That is the defining experience which is what it may take to break through with those who are not vaccinating their children", he added.

And we ask given continued fears in some communities around vaccines despite years of overwhelming scientific consensus about their safety, do we need to change how we talk about vaccines?

Symptoms of measles appear about 10 to 12 days after exposure, Amler said.

Westchester borders Rockland County, where measles cases have been concentrated among members of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. "The vaccine has been proven safe and effective in preventing the spread of measles for decades and we have evidence". "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.

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.
