Agudath Israel of America is deeply concerned about the recent outbreak of measles and the threat it poses to communities around the country.
Among her daily battles - having to constantly repeat that the vaccine does not cause other diseases, that it does not lead to autism, and that the practice of using fetal tissue to produce the vaccine ended decades ago.
On Tuesday, the mayor declared a public health emergency requiring unvaccinated residents of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to get the vaccine or pay a potential $1,000 penalty.
And yet the county has not skimped in throwing resources at the problem. "So, we don't want people going into medical facilities and potentially exposing others".
The county reminded residents that if they have not been vaccinated, they should contact their healthcare provider. For example, an outbreak in Washington state is linked to a community where only about 80% of children were properly vaccinated.

"I know that parents may be afraid of getting their child vaccinated, but as a pediatrician, I know that getting vaccinated is far safer than getting measles", said NYC Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot, according to CBS News.
"It's like the clock has been turned back - it's insane!" Refusing vaccines is not a doctrine of the Jewish Orthodox, Mormon, Jehovah's Witness, or any other religious community. The result is that 95.6 percent of Utah children from kindergarten to 12th grade are adequately immunized against measles, according to a 2018 report from the Utah Department of Health. She said people should call ahead and make arrangements.
"We all share the same roads, we share the same stores, we all have to interact with each other".
