People with weakened immune systems-due to another illness or certain medications-are also at increased risk of getting a more serious case of measles, says Dr. Murphy.

"It really is a wake-up call", he said.

"As a pediatrician, I can't stress enough how critical is to vaccinate children against measles", said Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. Individuals potentially exposed, if infected, could develop symptoms as late as March 18, the alert said.

Measles is a highly contagious disease that is spread through the air and infects through the respiratory tract. "However, only about 80% of teenagers and young adults have received the full course of the vaccine and are vulnerable to catching measles". "That's a remarkable upswing from the last two years: in 2017 there were just 120 cases, and the following year, 372".

"It says in the Torah "V'nishmartem Meod L'nafshoseichem", that a person must guard their health", said Rabbi David Niederman, President of the UJO of Williamsburg and North Brooklyn.

With recent public notices of Measle outbreaks in Washington State, Vancouver and Edmonton, there has been a rise of conversations on social media pointing towards an alleged case of measles in FSJ.

The CDC reports the best way to protect against measles is to get the MMR shot and that doctors recommend all children get it. "Vaccines, like any medicine, can have side effects". DeGette told the audience that such disruptions were in violation of House rules; Messonnier then said that the vaccine doesn't cause brain swelling or encephalitis in healthy children.

Ten countries account for more than 74 percent of the total increase, and the disease has reemerged in several nations that had previously been declared measles-free.
