Oxiris Barbot said on Tuesday that she is ordering everyone who lives, works or goes to school in Williamsburg to get vaccinated against the highly contagious disease.
Measles spreads easily via coughing and sneezing, and can result in serious health complications ranging from permanent loss of hearing to brain swelling and death.
The commissioner’s order also says that parents and guardians of any unvaccinated children in Williamsburg aged over six months have to ensure the child is vaccinated within 48 hours of the order being issued, “unless such parent or guardian can demonstrate that the child has immunity to the disease or document that he or she should be medically exempt from this requirement.”
Speaking at a press briefing on the emergency declaration, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said people who remain unvaccinated in the affected area will face fines. He also said that concerns about an unsupported link between the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) and autism have contributed to some people refusing vaccination and remaining unprotected against the disease.
Join me for an update on how we're confronting the measles outbreak in Williamsburg. https://t.co/otgNpRYtlp— Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) April 9, 2019
Starting today, as Michael Snyder writes at The End of The American Dream blog, any child that has not received the measles vaccine will be banned from all public places. That means that they will not be able to go to school, to church or to any store. In fact, just walking down the sidewalk will be a violation of this countywide “state of emergency”. Rockland County has essentially declared a state of medical martial law, and it is scheduled to last for the next 30 days…
In case you haven’t been paying attention, there has been an unprecedented push by the mainstream media and government in 2019 to force all citizens to be vaccinated. This mandatory vaccine hysteria has so far been highly effective as governments across the country have proposed legislation to remove your right to informed consent.
Tensions are high regarding vaccines lately. Due to a measles outbreak in the United States, frightened people are pushing an agenda to take an important medical decision out of the hands of parents. They’re calling for federally mandated vaccines.
