New York City'shealth commissioner is empowered by law to issue such orders in cases where they might be necessary to protect against a serious public health threat.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced mandatory vaccinations for Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood after more than 250 people have been infected with measles since September in the section. The outbreak has largely centred around ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities where immunisation rates are low.
"People in violation of our order to get vaccinated against measles will get a violation and could be fined $1,000 per instance", NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner Oxiris Barbot tweeted.
"To challenge the unsafe misinformation that is being spread by a group of anti-vaxxers, it's crucial that everyone around them be vaccinated to shield them from infection", Barbot said.
Last week, a judge ruled against an order in New York's Rockland County, temporarily halting an order from health officials there that barred unvaccinated children from public school. "You literally need to track down every single person that person came in contact with". All but 39 of the confirmed cases are in children.
There have been no deaths associated with this outbreak, although there have been complications, including 21 hospitalizations and five admissions to the intensive care unit.
"We stand with the majority of people in this community who have worked hard to protect their children and those at risk". It is safe, it is effective, it is time-tested.
De Blasio's vaccination order applies to all people, including children over six months old, who may have been exposed to the virus.
"We urge everyone who can get vaccinated to get vaccinated", Barbot said.
Outbreaks nationwide have forced state and city health officials to pursue tougher stances, such as mandatory vaccines or banning unvaccinated children from public places, prompting legal challenges and judicial intervention. Those who are uninsured will pay what they can afford, de Blasio said, and those who cannot afford the vaccination will receive it free.
