The measles virus once thought to be eradicated in the United States is now a full-blown epidemic in parts of the country. New York City health officials closed 7 schools amid the worst measles outbreak in 20 years.

2 more Brooklyn schools were closed this week in an effort to contain the outbreak, CBS2 reports. The measles outbreak has spread to 22 states, with at least 704 confirmed cases.

The city said the schools failed to comply with the health commissioner's emergency order to keep unvaccinated children away from the schools. Last week, the city issued summonses to 57 people who have been noncompliant with the emergency order.

Measles is a highly contagious infectious viral disease that develops 10-12 days after exposure to an infected child or adult.

The disease is spread by coughing, sneezing, or close personal contact with the secretions of an infected person. The symptoms include a skin rash, high fever, cough, runny nose, and red inflamed eyes.

Officials have spearheaded a massive drive to get New York residents vaccinated.

The health department urges Gen Xers, those people born between 1965 and 1980, to get vaccinated against the measles, mumps and rubella. The CDC says the MMR booster shot is very safe and effective.

The measles vaccine was first introduced in 1963. Early versions of the vaccine were not as effective as today's shots.

      There has been a big debate the past couple of weeks to say that folks should have their kids vaccinated... but are the vaccinated or un-vaccinated kids getting the measles?

    • Shamwow

      Smh what is wrong with people either vaccinate your child or keep them home. Why put everyone else at risk because you want to be a “western” family. Smh the kids these days got it better than we did back in the day. Chicken pox is no longer a right of passage. Vaccinations took care of it.

    • Shamwow

      Good question.

    • Marlika

      ? Sandra is being misleading as usually!!

      This is just happening in the Hasidic communities, they don’t believe in vaccinations. The health department is forcing them to do it now or face hefty fines!!

      No one outside their communities has co tracked the measles, it’s just them.

    • Elevated Soul

      Fools sitting up here talking about people not getting their kids vaccinated, as if all these illegal aliens coming here aren't the ones bring their nasty diseases to this country. This is why SMART people support the WALL....

      How sad, this is all propaganda I am sure that started from the Russian government.

      I don't know how anyone was able to enroll a child into school without proper shot records. From what I can remember a child would be denied enrollment and then you would get a little visit from DCS for not having your child vaccinated. Jenny McCarthy also needs to be blackballed for her roll in this mess too!

      The un-vaccinated kids and babies are getting it.

      And this is what me and my husband were arguing about the other day. He is one of those ppl on the "gov't tryna control ppl with vaccinations and crap" train.

      I said i don't give a sh*t. I'm all about vaccinations. i don't care and our son will always get his needles whether he like it or not.

    • Dowoop

      Question: If I vaccinated my kid but you didn't do I need to worry about my kid catching it from yours? I'm just trying to figure out if that many people really didn't vaccinate their kids and if they didn't and there is an outbreak why are they putting them at risk twice over.

      Scrools back up... I didn't even see the damn man the first time!

    • TRUTHbeabsolute

      Truth be told this is EXACTLY where these diseases are coming from. I worked around quite a few illegal immigrants a few years ago and they brought with them deadly staph infections, TB, whooping cough and a WHOLE LOT other stuff the U.S. hadn't seen in decades. They also brought diseases that doctors had NEVER seen in this country before.

    • The Art

      There's a small chance that a vaccinated child can still get it.

    • Dowoop

      So the legal immigrants from the exact same place didn't have any of these?

    • TRUTHbeabsolute

      I don't know I was only in contact with the illegal ones.

    • Dowoop

      I just asked this question.. Ppl keep saying they are putting everyone at risk but if I vaccinated my kids are they at risk?

    • Guest

      Exactly. I live in Borough Park in Brooklyn. The second highest cases. Williamsburg also in Brooklyn has the highest amount of cases.

    • Guest

      I believe, Orthodox Jews because of religious beliefs don't vacinate their children, BKLYN has a high population of Jewish people.

    • TRUTHbeabsolute

      Just tell him that the government ALREADY controls people and it ain't a damn thing he or anyone else can do to stop it.

      I wonder if the jewish community will start to take a dive down the socioeconomic ladder after they all start having to be vaccinated.....

    • Rayne

      Growing up I got all of those shots and I’m ok. Mmr, tdap, varicella, polio and all of em. So has my kid. I won’t even let my kid in a daycare until she proved to me that everybody was vaccinated.

    • DroneRivers

      I'm about to start walking the streets of NY with a mask on. Shid as a germaphobe I've been halfway tempted to do it for years anyway. Don't want you even blinking in my direction, let alone coughing and sneezing. And "secretions". Sandra, that word got me all messed up today! Lol

    • tintin

      yes. And Canada don't care, you aint' immunized, you kicked out of school. point blank. homeschool your kids if you don't want them immunized. That's how it goes here.

    • Marlika

      You see how they were out in droves all Willy nilly like they’re not walking around with measles last week and this weekend?? I know it was their holiday but they should’ve spent it indoors this year. Instead of being all over the 5 boroughs with that crap. ?????

    • RespectSelf

      That's what I'm struggling with... I'm wondering if my logic is not meeting science. I would think that vaccinating your child would allow them to fight off the virus that they were vaccinated for.

    • Elevated Soul

      They sure do bring diseases never seen before.

      I even saw a man from the Congo suspected of having Ebola being stopped at the border....

      American taxpayers are already taxed enough and now we got these d@mn leeches here causing hella havoc.

    • Marlika

      Hasidic community has their own school we’re only their children attend. If you know anything about their culture you know how they roll. They have their own ambulance, medical care, police etc.

    • RespectSelf

      I also didn't think there were too many kids in public school that weren't vaccinated. It seems to be a requirement for your children to be in school.

    • tintin

      my sister didn't vaccinate her son until it was time to go to school. She feared autism because of those theorists. She was a housewife so she really kept her kids inside majority of the time and when it was time to go to school at 4, they got all the shots they needed one time.

    • tintin

      i do. he don't care.
      and i told him be quiet, cause all his shots be up to date.

      They have sent everyone in these areas a whole pamphlet and instructions on where to go get vaccinated including what will happen (fines) if you don't. I got mine last week which I threw away.. I watch news 12 Brooklyn every night which is our local station. The problem is in their communities. Their rabbi's are begging them to get vaccinated.

    • Marlika

      I feel the fine is not high enough. I was reading about the communities and religion as a whole cause I was curious. They are really uneducated people and are ignorant to the world outside their community, it’s sad. There’s a guy in my building who left the Hasidic Community . He was telling me how he couldn’t do algebra when he went to college for the first time about 2 years ago. They don’t go past the 8th grade. He struggles with working a smart phone and basic technology and just basic things.

    • Kayke

      If you’re vaccinated, I don’t understand your outrage. You and your child should
      be protected and the “outbreak” should only be among the unvaccinated population. You may have full confidence in the government and pharmaceutical companies, but some people don’t and chose to live their life with a healthy, well-deserved distrust for them.

Have their ugly kids gawking at you in public or running your over while they're on their scooters and bicycles. Don't get me started how they'll walk down the street in groups and expect you to get out their way. Then they love crossing the street when the lights red and expect you to stop for them. Smh.

      For an adult, the measles is the flu, so as long as you take the same precautions you do for folks with the flu, I don’t see the risk. The risk of dying from measles hasn’t changed since 1963. In today’s medical environment, no one should die from the measles. I had it in 1986, as a toddler in a “shithole” country.

They'll only deal with outsiders if they have to. They'll for just about any damn thing for money. A lot of them are scammers , felons and launder money. Don't get me started on their slum lord ways.

      Because the outrage is for the children who have not been able to get the vaccine due to age yet or folks with compromised immune systems let’s not forget there are adults who didn’t get the vaccine when they were younger because it wasn’t required. If you don’t want to vaccinate you or your kids I feel those ppl should have communities and school that they can attend it feel ya everyone’s right to CHOOSE BUT stay away or respect the ppl who feel differently and take precautions. But I’ve noticed most of the ppl who don’t vaccinate don’t take their kids to the doctor on a regular only when they sick with one foot in grave. They do home remedies and when the mess gets outta hand they want to RUN to the same folks they claim are trying to poison and kill their kids ????? For guess what? Medicine ? I don’t get the logic

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      chile research your immune system and learn how to enhance it. Your body can heal itself if treated and nourished properly (alkaline state). Pumping your body full of foreign metals/ingredients from these pharmaceutical companies is not protecting you. That's why they keep reintroducing the refurbished vaccines every few years (for profit). Same with the flu shot and the new strands. I've never had a vaccination nor my kids and I don't plan to start. People can say what they want but I will not pump aluminum, mercury, or anything else in myself or my babies.

      Now take that number and divide it by how many of those reported cases led to death in the U.S. = ZERO.

      Now take the yearly average amount of people KILLED by FDA approved (the agency you pay your tax dollars to ensure the drugs you take are "safe") pharmaceutical drugs = 106,000 DEAD, In fact the U.S. Medical System as a whole kills on average over 225,000 people per year

This was the cost in 2014.. that one vile alone x 372Mil = $50,592,000,000.00. one vile..we average about what 30 vaccines per person.. come on now.. the healthcare is making a killing killing us..

    • Truth Or Die

      MMR Vaccine potential side effects include meningitis, encephalitis, pancreatitis, diabetes, decreased blood platelets, convulsions, seizures, arthritis, bronchial spasm asthmatic reaction, pneumonia, anaphylactic shock & DEATH.

      Why does the mainstream media almost NEVER mention this when reporting about the latest measles and urging all parents to make sure their children are vaccinated?

    • Truth Or Die

      BANG. No need for "conspiracy theories" when you can simply research the facts according to THEM

    • Phillybruh

      But since these vaccines are given when the child is young, there is no long-term profit for the measles. There is no cure once you get the measles that is where a profit would be made.

      A lady I know fills out an exempt form for hers she got it from an anti-vax site. They have groups and they tell each other how to go about it. Its sad.

      Ok, since lunchtime is over. I once saw two guys on the train on the way to work one morning. One of them had a cold. He sneezed and there was a big swath of snot that came out of his nose in his hand. He purposely took his hand and wiped it on one of the poles. Then laughed and got off the train. I will never in my life forget what I saw. I was in shock. Nothing else nasty that happens on the train shocked me after I saw that.

    • jwoo250

      Are you serious? You know how many folks have weak immune systems out here. Imagine an infant who can't get all those vaccinations getting ill or an elder person. Or as you can see as stated below even a person with asthma is at risk.

    • laidbackgal4real

      Ever since the Jewish community turned them away from their school .. nvm .. anyway I think this is a made up agenda ... so we can point fingers at the Jewish community... if I’m wrong please forgive me people I sincerely apologize

    • OvertheMississippi

      Mumps here in Metro ATL right now.

    • xxxgracious

      My friend was dingy when she gave birth to her child. Said she and the father agreed on no vaccinations. Her mother got ahold of the child one day and took him to his pediatrician and got him all his vaccines. I know my friend was furious with her mom. Even kept the child away from her. Now she's thankful her mom did it after she divorced her husband...then wanna ask why we never had play dates and only feeding that baby organic stuff. Everytime I see that child I buy him some junk food and he lights up lol.

      ANd chicken pox parties I ain’t never in all my damn day heard of such foolishness

    • Kimberly King

      I know so many people who’ve had bad reactions to vaccines. There’s no telling what they’re shooting in your veins: Cancer, AIDS, or some other type of man-made ass disease. All of this sh*t comes from white people. Get rid of the source. That’s your only solution. Gosh I would hate to be them ... thin lips, big ass waistlines, terrible skin conditions, diseases, etc. I got all of my shots as a child and adolescent as it was required by state law to attend public schools. However, I don’t trust vaccines. Never have, never will. No you cannot shoot sugar water or cancer in me. It’s already in the food and in the air.

      And to the people crying about kids in daycare not being vaccinated: y’all know damn well everyone does not care for their children the same. There’s people who will send their kids to daycare or school sick AF and not give to f*cks. On my soul if I ever have a child, they will never step foot into a daycare. I wouldn’t trust strangers caring for my baby.

    • TheNightKingWearsPressOns

      Lolol thank goodness for the mom!

    • Bonita

      I wish I would. They won't be vaccinating me!

    • Parent

      I was on the train today and saw Hasidic moms with their young children and I was scared. These people feel superior. Can't stand them.

    • Kayke

      Yeah, but where Is the outrage for folks who don’t get flu shots?

    • WutizstillHERE!

      Sweetie you know all vaccines are made made of the very thing..so they inject you with the kilt form of measels so your body reacts to it as if it was the live version just not as intense to give you the antibodies for it. but it is also know that what the body doesn't eliminate it encapsulates to protect the rest of your body.. More people get sick from the vaccine than the people who actually contracts it on their own..

    • Jersey Girl

      That part!

    • WutizstillHERE!

      More people die from vaccine complications than the actual virus but they don't tell you that nor do they show that part.

    • Li-Wright

      So happy NYC is taking these moves and fining these families. The Jews complained and the city backed off. But these families should be fined.

    • NewNew

      No, the vaccine covers your child. If the majority of the "herd" is vaccinated then it generally protects the unvaccinated members too because they have less opportunities to catch the disease/illness. Because of that anti-vacc movement that's been going on lately there are more unvaccinated children out there so certain diseases that were practically eradicated are making a comeback. Plus foreign countries don't always have the same vaccination standards that we do, so travelers can be the cause of certain outbreaks as well. I'm thinking specifically of Tuberculosis but it extends to other ailments too.

    • Phillybruh

      I guess, my kids have never been sick from the vaccine and they got them when they were babies and we get the flu shot every year. May as well put a bubble around you.

    • KLove

      I'm all for the right to practice your religion freely....but your rights end when they begin infringe on the rights of others...in this case, the unvaccinated folks are infringing on others' right to life

    • WutizstillHERE!

      Your babies are fortunate indeed but I cant over look the others who weren't. I wish my kids weren't they didn't have any side affect that I know of but what I do know now I wouldn't do it again. I don't knock those who choose them either it is their right just as it was mine.

    • Renee26

      Chicken pox "parties" are old school

    • Renee26

      Ewwwww ?

    • ChikPea

      Wait till the hordes of migrants start marching into the sanctuary cities

    • Dun Dilly

      These "woke" anti vaxxers and illegals gonna bring back the Black Plague on y'all.

    • Melanated Goddess??

      Yes to the last part! I've seen them on line at the social security offices numerous times. Hell I've seen the women get dropped off while their husbands speed off! Leaving the faux widow/ single mother to collect her benefits with her 50-11 children with her. Smh.

    • dontgetblocked

      Wait a minute! I'm a Gen-Xer. Are we the only group that wasn't vaccinated against the measles. You mean to tell me that these filthy immigrants are making me vulnerable to an eradicated disease. Build that damn wall. Kick illegal mofos out and limit and test those that come in. First...they brought bed bugs ...now measles.

    • dontgetblocked

      Stable company and they pay dividends. Hmmm.

    • dontgetblocked

      Prednisone is so dangerous. Be careful.

    • dontgetblocked

      I have masks and will wear them.

    • TransMichelle

      You are correct...! A documentary called VAXXED Documentary Explored With Filmmakers On Antidote from the YouTube channel TheLipTV2 is quite interesting.There's plenty of other information too. Apart from the documentary from what I have heard, this measles outbreak is coming from illegals the Demoncrats are fighting to allow into the country. There was a time when immigrants came to the country they were tested for diseases not any longer. And by the way, there's a hell of a lot of other diseases popping up in the country that were once eradicated from 1st world countries. Including sh*t like Ebola..!

      They call them "medieval diseases." These diseases include typhus — a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals, especially among the homeless in California.
      People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria, which is spread through feces and causes the diarrheal disease shigellosis, as well as Bartonella quintana, which spreads through body lice and causes trench fever. Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through feces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years. The disease also has erupted in New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs. While the outbreaks are occurring primarily among the homeless, public health officials warn that these diseases can easily spread outside of that population. Terms like “disaster” and “public health crisis” are being used to describe the outbreaks. Those infectious diseases are not limited to homeless populations, Lopez warned. “Even someone who believes they are protected from these infections are not.”

      At least one Los Angeles city staffer said she contracted typhus in City Hall last fall. And San Diego County officials warned in 2017 that diners at a well-known restaurant were at risk of hepatitis A."

      Now check this out..they've got another disease (that they scared to let the public know about) that they can't even treat and it's spreading like wildfire. It's called Candida auris, a superbug fungal strain that has emerged from the widespread use of chemical fungicides in agriculture. It's spreading like crazy in hospitals with a 41% to 80% fatality rate. When a man died at Mount Sinai hospital in Brooklyn after being infected with C. auris, his hospital room was tested.

      “After a man died from it in a US hospital they tested everything and it was positive — the walls, the bed, the doors, the curtains, the phones, the sink, the whiteboard, the poles, the pump,” said Dr. Scott Lorin, the hospital’s president. “The mattress, the bed rails, the canister holes, the window shades, the ceiling, everything in the room was positive.”

      A strange new illness that the media claims originated in the Middle East has struck dozens of hospital workers and potentially many others across Florida and throughout the Southeast. Reports that the MERS virus, also known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, can kill up to one-third of people who contract it, and it has no known cure. Keep in mind that the 1000s daily coming illegally across the border are not only from Mexico, Honduras, and Ecuador. They are also coming from Africa and the Middle East. The Demoncrats are protecting and arranging their journey and making sure they can vote once they touch US soil. The Sh&^t Is Hitting The Fan as we speak..!

    • Libby

      I feel sorry for the children with a parent who would rather their kid be infected/infect others that get vaccinated. My sister was a school nurse and most primary school kids parents would even see kids off to school which meant they miss free breakfast so now kid is sick in class, Teacher send to nurse office and they say my head hurt! ????? most often they was hungry?! Let do better for the kids.. Thanks goodness I don’t have grandkids?? What will happen now that schools are closed.

    • Tina

      When I was a kid, vaccinations were mandated. Now who the hell thought it was a good idea to give people choices about getting vaccinated? That's the problem with this country, we let the minority rule, and in the end everyone suffers.

    • Tina

      So you would rather get a disease that was once were eradicated and infect people with it. You are part of the problem with this situation. If you want to get measles, mumps or any other disease be my guest but you and everyone else who thinks like you should be taken to an island far away. You can infect each other and die if that is your wish. Just leave us out of it.

    • Tina

      People are so dumb nowadays and the people in this country are just getting more stupid day by day.

    • Malificent

      ????? don’t it make them want the junk food all the more.

    • Kimberly King

      Oh I’m definitely a problem, but not because of that silly ass reason. I’ve never gotten a flu shot and I’m not gonna start now. That is white people’s problems not mine. I was waiting on one of you losers to try me. You can talk that junk the media has planted in your heads all you want. There’s not a soul on earth who’ll ever make me feel bad about not wanting a man-made drug injected into my body. But if I ever catch the measles (which I highly doubt I ever will), you’ll be the first tramp I infect. Lol byyyyyyeeeeeeee ???

    • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

      There’s an outrage too especially when folks refuse to get the flu shot then come to the clinic with the flu and DEMAND tamiflu for them and their entire family when the side effects of tamiflu are worse than getting the damn flu shot I don’t understand the logic ! There were countless parents and ppl this year who came to urgent care with the flu each person I asked if they got the flu shot they said NO! during flu season the hospital restricts visits and patients are asked or encouraged to do virtual visits if they think they have the flu so not to spread it to folks at the clinics but do they listen no!!

    • okiseethisthatdumbshit

      anyone who is was vaccinated should have nothing to worry about...right?? its the people you are not vaccinated who are catching it and if they are catching it they will have the measles for a few weeks and now they are immune too ... so was the problem.. fake news

    • TheOwley

      So many families skipping on vaccines. We will have a pandemic and we don't know how to handle that. Right now it's measles. But wait until the other childhood diseases rear their ugly heads. If you are an anti-vaxxer, hide.

    • Lovely517

      Well when bedbugs reappeared, I knew all hell was about to break loose in this country.

    • Goodii2Shoes

      The Germans/other white people said that the reason why the extermination of jews was so successful was because "the jews were diseased, sick & refusing to quarantine, medicate/treat their sickness with respect to everyone else". They went on to say the jews were "nasty, diseased people- especially the orthodox & they were not going to allow them to infect everyone with their diseases simply because they were too stupid/illiterate to treat a contagious disease".

      Then they somehow escaped the Gestapo. And were brought over to turtle island as illiterate, nameless "circles" to the chagrin of all the native people who did not speak English & did not know that the white people were intent on shipping sick, illiterate, impoverished, fugitives across the oceans to inhabit our land
