5. Measles outbreak: Parents file lawsuit, New York City shuts down school |
בתגובה להודעה מספר 0
WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A group of parents have filed a lawsuit against New York City amid the current measles outbreak, while health department officials announced they had closed a child care program for failing to provide access to medical records.
The parents, who live within the Brooklyn zip codes covered by Mayor Bill de Blasio's public health emergency declaration, are seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent the mandatory vaccinations from taking effect.
The lawsuit against the New York City Department of Health called the emergency order "arbitrary and capricious," and the measures it necessitates "drastic."
The order demands all persons over 6 months who live, work or attend school within the specified zip codes of Williamsburg be vaccinated.
The parents who are suing argued that "there is insufficient evidence of a measles epidemic or dangerous outbreak to justify" forced vaccinations, and they accused the city of failing to take the least restrictive measures to end the outbreak.
Meanwhile, the Department of Health announced that it has closed the United Talmudical Academy, located at 75 Ross Street in Williamsburg, for "repeatedly failing to provide access to medical and attendance records in violation of an Order of the Health Commissioner."
