              Recent Infections in Brooklyn
              Since October, there have been 29 confirmed cases of measles in the Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn. The initial child was unvaccinated and acquired measles on a visit to Israel, where a large outbreak of the disease is occurring.
              If you plan to travel to Israel, protect yourself against measles and get vaccinated at least two weeks in advance of your trip. If you have traveled to Israel and you have a fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose and body rash, contact your doctor.

                War Breaks Out in New York’s ultra-Orthodox Community Over Measles Outbreak
                Unique aspects of Haredi culture have led to an anti-vaxxer movement developing in the community. As senior rabbis issue contradictory rulings, medical experts are using informal gatherings to try to spread the word about the importance of vaccinations

                NEW YORK – The current measles outbreak in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods in the New York area is leading to threats, recriminations and lawsuits, and is also highlighting the lack of consensus among senior rabbis on the vaccination issue.

                However, it is also leading to new approaches from medical experts trying to reach those who, in the face of nearly 130 suspected cases of the highly contagious disease, remain determined not to vaccinate their children...

                    2018 Measles Outbreak in Rockland County:

                    As of November 27, 2018, there are 80 confirmed reported cases of measles in Rockland County.

                    What is Measles
                    Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease (in the lungs and breathing tubes) caused by a virus that is spread by direct contact with nasal or throat secretions of infected people (when a person infected with the measles virus breathes, coughs, or sneezes). Measles is one of the most contagious viruses on earth; one measles infected person can give the virus to 18 others. In fact, 90% of unvaccinated people exposed to the virus become infected. You can catch measles just by being in a room where a person with measles has been, up to 2 hours after that person is gone. And you can catch measles from an infected person even before they have a measles rash.

If you have traveled to Israel and you have a fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose and body rash, contact your doctor. You should call your doctor before going to their office to prevent exposing other people to measles.

                        "It’s very, very contagious," she said of the measles infection. "Unfortunately, it can cause very serious infections."

                        The resident, an Eastern European immigrant who came to the United States on Nov. 27, visited Catholic Charities on Herkimer Street, the Department of Health clinic on William Street, Sweet Home High School, Erie County Social Services on Pearl Street, Aldi and Best Buy on Transit Road, Marshalls on Maple Road and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, Burstein said...
