Monsey Yeshivos Not Accepting Children Not Vaccinated! .... TWO THOUSAND Unvaccinated People Receive Measles Vaccine in Monsey Since Outbreak

According to a News 12 report, in just a few days, two thousand people have received the measles vaccine in Monsey.
Rockland County administered around 300 MMR vaccines, and a partnering health clinic has given out 1,700.
Dozens of families turned up Thursday to the county’s Health Department, which was offering free MMR vaccines at the community outreach center. It was the latest in a series of free vaccine clinics offered by the county following the outbreak, which started at the beginning of this month.
The outbreak started after several people infected with the virus returned from Israel.
The number of confirmed cases is up to 18, with six more suspected.
There will be another free vaccine clinic Friday in Spring Valley.
Last Wednesday, it was reported that 6 residents of Williamsburg and seven residents of Rockland County were confirmed to have the disease. An additional eight suspected cases in Rockland County were being investigated involving a mix of adults and children. Many are linked to recent travel to Israel which has been dealing with the disease for months.
Last Thursday, the Viznitz Monsey Girls School announced that any child who is not immunized, can’t return to school for 21 days. No “religious exemption” is accepted. A religious exemption does not work when there is a measles outbreak.
