"The answer, I think, all leads to the fact that we have to work towards an awareness campaign that is effective. And I think that it's incumbent upon the health officials from the city and the state level to work with people like myself, community leaders, and to effectively plan awareness campaign that can persuade people. And I believe that if we do so with sensitivity and we do so in the right approach, we will see a reduction of outbreaks over time."
Health officials Tuesday ordered everyone in one New York City neighborhood to get vaccinated for measles or face fines, aiming to stem an outbreak by reviving a public-health strategy that experts say hasn't been used in the U.S. in recent memory.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the unusual order amid what he said was a measles crisis in Brooklyn's Williamsburg section, home to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, where more than 250 people have gotten measles since September. Officials blamed the outbreak on "anti-vaxxers" spreading false information.
The order applies to anyone living, working or going to school in four ZIP codes in the neighborhood and requires all unvaccinated people at risk of exposure to the virus to get the vaccine, including children over 6 months old.
The city can't legally physically force someone to get a vaccination, but officials said people who ignore the order could be fined $1,000. The city said it would help everyone covered by the order get the vaccine if they can't get it quickly through their regular medical provider.
Officials say 285 measles cases have been confirmed in New York City since the beginning of the outbreak, the largest in the city since 1991.
New York City accounted for about two-thirds of all U.S. measles cases reported last week.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all children get two doses of measles vaccine. It says the vaccine is 97% effective.
