New York Suburb Declares Measles Emergency, Barring Unvaccinated Children From Public (nytimes.com)

An executive order pulled close to 6,000 unvaccinated children out of schools. Nearly 17,000 doses of the measles-mumps-rubella (M.M.R.) vaccine were given in 26 weeks. There was a public health campaign in which community officials, doctors and rabbis testified to the importance of immunizations.

Anti-vaccination adherents are fucking morons. I want the government to immunize every person forcefully. You can't yell "fire" in a public space. You shouldn't be able to enter any public area without being vaccinated. If visitors to the USA are required to be vaccinated, then I see no reason why US citizens are excluded from the requirement. Require proof of vaccination for the issuance of a drivers license and passport.

Lawrence O. Gostin, a professor of global health law at Georgetown University, said he found Rockland County’s emergency order deeply problematic.

He said he is a longtime proponent of making vaccines compulsory for children to attend schools, but questioned whether the order is constitutional.

“This is virtually imprisonment of a child, and certainly significantly restricting the child’s liberty,” Mr. Gostin said.

And if it was an outbreak of Ebola what would this fucking moron say?
