New York City declares measles public health emergency

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a public health emergency Tuesday for parts of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section following a measles outbreak. Health Commissioner said the outbreak was being ’driven by a small group of anti-vaxxers’ in the targeted neighborhoods. The outbreak has mainly been confined to the Orthodox Jewish community in the borough’s Williamsburg neighborhood.

I dont view this as a good thing. I am not antivax, but forcing people to take things they dont want to, to not have control over their own bodies, is wrong. This is a slippery slope.

Now I'm starting to wonder what the real reason for mandating vaccines is. This clearly does not prevent outbreaks like the one in Brooklyn. Even the CDC and anyone willing to look at the data would know. 3 in 100 VACCINATED individuals will still contract the disease when they come in contact with it. Vaccines are incredibly inefficient as a means of eradicating the disease and they know this. So why push for the mandate? Why do these pushes come in Dem controlled parts of the country? I used to think vaccine conspiracy theorist were out there too far. With actions like this it makes me question them more. If they are so good and work so well why do they fail so often in clinical trials? Why do they want EVERYONE to get them if they are effective at what they do shouldn't the ones that are vaccinated be safe already? This type of behavior just raises so many questions. It is an extreme move to try to mandate foreign objects injected into people against their will.

Fascism is growing, beware. But don’t fear, the truth always prevails and when the truth is known far and wide about the detrimental effects of vaccines particularly the very few vaccines that have been properly studied such as the MMR, hep B, and the obvious bad one since it still has mercury in it the flu vaccine. The people will hunt down the fascists who were pushing this madness and hang them in the streets. Mark my words this might get ugly and many children injured, but truth always prevails so beware fascist pigs your time is nigh.

Time for segregation? Maybe anti-Vaxers need a land all of their own where they can die of preventable diseases. 🤔

What are they going to mandate next. Force people to stop smoking while attacking vaping at the same time. No Alcohol? No potato chips? They don't even offer a single vaccination for measles, only the MMR

THis is why we have guns! The government does not get to inject shit into my veins. They can bring matters to my attention and ask me to consult my doctor but putting shit in me is where I draw the line.

Nothing to to with anti vaxxers but the illegal immigrants flooding the country with untreated diseases that were once extinct in our nation. Oh but blame it on a small minority of people who don't want to be injected with harmful items that have been found in these shots

One more reason not to live in NYC. Say no to mandatory drug injections. You don't even realize how urgent it is that people don't let Uncle Sam forcibly drug an entire generation. They only censor things that they're afraid of, they have to make up new terms that make no sense like "herd immunity" to compensate for people waking up. Why do you think vaccines are so important for "reducing the population growth" as Bill Gates said. One of the biggest vaccine pushers in the world, who also just so happens to refuse to vaccinate his own family, like most people in power.

This only affects people who don’t vaccinate and don’t get their boosters. Mandating this is stupid. If you want vaccines, get vaccines for you and your loved ones. This only affects those who have CHOSEN not to be vaccinated. It is their CHOICE to do this, even if you think it’s stupid.
