          Recent Outbreak in Brooklyn and Queens

          As of May 6, 2019, there have been 466 confirmed cases of measles in Brooklyn and Queens since September. Most of these cases have involved members of the Orthodox Jewish community.
          Vaccination Requirement in Brooklyn

          On April 9, the Health Commissioner ordered every adult and child who lives, works or resides in the following ZIP codes and has not received the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to be vaccinated:
          • 11205
          • 11206
          • 11211
          • 11249
          On April 17, the Board of Health voted unanimously to adopt a resolution supporting the Commissioner's order and the vaccination requirement.
          As of May 6, 22,833 doses of the MMR vaccine have been administered to people who are under 19 years old in Williamsburg and Borough Park since October.
          People who demonstrate they are immune from measles or have a medical condition that prevents them from receiving the vaccine will not need to get vaccinated.
          If the Health Department identifies a person with measles or an unvaccinated child exposed to measles in one of the above ZIP codes, that individual or their parent or guardian could be fined $1,000.
          You can get vaccinated at a Federally Qualified Health Center in Brooklyn (PDF), or at our immunization clinic in Fort Greene...

                              Posted 2:22 PM, May 28, 2019, by Kristine Garcia

                              ROCKLAND, N.Y. — Rockland County officials have issued a third declaration of a state of emergency as the measles crisis in the country grows.

                              The second declaration was due to expire May 25th at 11:59 p.m. The renewed state of emergency went into effect Sunday morning and will remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. June 24, 2019, according to Rockland County officials.

                              “21,582 MMR vaccinations have been given in Rockland since October 2018. This number has increased by 4,624 since the declaration of the original State of Emergency on March 26, 2019; clearly showing how much progress we are making against this outbreak, despite the confusion caused by the various court rulings,” said County Executive Ed Day. “This outbreak, however, is still a public health emergency and we need the entire community’s help to end it.”

                              In a Tuesday morning press conference, New York Sen. Brad Hoylman called on the Legislature to pass a bill that would require the end of religious exemptions and non-medical loopholes for vaccines...
