This state of emergency banned children unvaccinated from measles (other than those with confirmed medical reasons) from public places.

Last week saw a minor victory for vaccination advocates amid the United States' ongoing measles outbreak: A Kentucky judge ruled against a lawsuit filed by 18-year-old Jerome Kunkel against the Northern Kentucky Health Department, claiming the department had discriminated against Kunkel by asking schools to exclude students not vaccinated for chicken pox from school and extracurricular activities.

Facing a rapidly spreading outbreak of measles, Mayor Bill de Blasio has rightly declared a public health emergency, with fines for those who refuse to be vaccinated. "And they may spread measles to people who can not get vaccinated because they are too young or have specific health conditions". This outbreak has the second greatest number of infected individuals since measles was eradicated in the country in the 2000s.

As expressed by de Blasio, he not at all wants Measles to make a comeback in New York City and there is a need to stop it anyhow.

And while the highly contagious respiratory disease has yet to hit Utahns, "we're only one airline flight within a case coming here", said Dr. Tamara Sheffield, medical director for community health and prevention at Intermountain Healthcare.

A public health emergency has been declared in NY in the U.S. due to a growing outbreak of measles.

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.

"It was time to take a more muscular approach", Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference as the emergency measures were announced. "It's not just that they know what questions to ask".

Other than encouraging residents to vaccinate themselves or their children, Westchester County is not taking any action at this time, Latimer said.

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

But Begun said a larger number may delay the first measles-mumps-rubella vaccine until 2 years of age instead of the recommended 1 year, vastly increasing the number of unvaccinated children who can be infected. The news was good: Measles declined worldwide by almost 80 percent between 2000 and 2016, with fatalities - mostly among children younger than age 5 - plummeting to about 90,000 per year from about 550,000.

"You will not find rabbis citing Jewish law to say people should not be vaccinated", he said, stressing that his federation, like other Jewish organizations, encourages vaccination.

Babies and people with immune-compromised conditions who cannot be immunized against measles, she said, can develop serious complications from contracting measles, including brain swelling, which can lead to brain damage and even death. These recent steps included refusing unvaccinated children to go to school. Citizens have been ordered to get vaccinated against Measles with immediate effect, and the failure to follow the orders will result in a $1000 fine.

Westchester officials say eight cases of measles have been confirmed in their county.
