New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio issued an order on Tuesday commanding all people who reside or work within 4 zip codes (11205, 11206, 11211 and 11249) in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn who have not received a measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine or who cannot demonstrate serological immunity must be injected with the MMR vaccine within 48 hours or face a potential fine of $1000.
Normally we would limit an appeal to just New York City but de Blasio is still toying with the idea of running for President so we are sending this nationally. Please call Mayor de Blasio and politely let the staffer know you oppose this gross infringement of fundamental human rights. (212) 788-3000

We expect a lawsuit challenging the order to be filed shortly.
There was no announcement of the number of current active cases of measles, only that there has been 260 or so cases in the past 6 months in a city of more than 8 million people. De Blasio is following a pattern we have seen around the world in recent years repeated in California, France, Italy and other places. Predictable outbreaks of measles are used to whip a hysteria which is then used as a pretext to limit individuals' and parents' control over what is done to their bodies and their children's bodies.
The Mayor's order follows upon a ruling last Friday by a New York Supreme Court Judge that vacated an Emergency Declaration by Ed Day, the Rockland County Executive, that banned unvaccinated minors from schools and public places in the County.
