Lawyer: Challenge to NYC's vaccination order in the works

Health officials in NY are concerned - and furious - over the spread of the parties in the Big Apple borough of Brooklyn.

Simon Harris has indicated he may consider mandatory immunisation after saying it was "extremely irresponsible and dangerous" to send unvaccinated children to school.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday he's confident that New York City's vaccination order would survive any legal challenge.

Latimer said people who have been vaccinated need not worry about contracting the virus.

Let's also not forget the other life-saving vaccines that protect us against such potentially deadly diseases as polio, hepatitis B, pneumococcal pneumonia, the flu, Haemophilus influenza type B, and HPV, which can cause cervical and throat cancers.

From Jan. 1 to April 4, 465 measles cases were confirmed in 19 US states, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

Like all but three USA states, NY requires a series of vaccinations for school-age children but has until now granted exemptions on both medical and religious grounds.

"Measles is a risky, potentially deadly disease that can easily be prevented with vaccine", Dr. Herminia Palacio, deputy mayor for Health and Human Services explained. It encourages people to check CDC travel advisories online before traveling to any foreign location.

With talks of major advancements in medicine like an HIV cure and genetic editing, no one imagined that America would be infiltrated by a disease we conquered almost 20 years ago. In Philadelphia, health officials sought a court order to force parents at two congregations to vaccinate their children. Doctors say symptoms usually develop 10 to 12 days after exposure to an infected person and last seven to 10 days.

"As a society we've said we'll allow a little bit of flexibility in our laws in order to give people a wider berth to exercise their personal beliefs", Indiana University public health law professor Ross D. Silverman recently told Wired magazine. It's another significant milepost on the road to what will probably become a record outbreak after vaccines led to the disease's "elimination" in the United States. There are reports of handbooks targeting the Orthodox community, arguing vaccines are not kosher or misrepresenting the danger of measles.

"When individuals are not vaccinated, there is a high likelihood of catching the disease", Sheffield said.

Since October, each case has been systematically investigated to determine how many people have been exposed to the ultracontagious virus. Officials blamed the outbreak on "anti-vaxxers" spreading false information. The health department will investigate where each person has gone while contagious, and all the people they may have interacted with.

Sheffield said that before 2000, millions were infected every year across the world.

"The measles vaccine is highly effective", Dr. Herminia Palacio, the city's deputy mayor for health and human services, said Wednesday.

As anti-vaccination movements continue to rise, Coffey explained that the widespread opposition to vaccination is mainly based in false news about side effects.
