Rockland County: Proposed Bill Would End Religious Exemptions For Measles Vaccines


News 12 Reports: Proposed legislation from Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz would ban religious and non-medical exemptions as a reason for parents not to vaccinate children in New York.

Measles cases are on the rise in Rockland. Officials say there are now 135 confirmed cases in Rockland County – a majority of them in children.

“When this broke, and it was predominantly in the area where we have Orthodox community, the rabbis there, and it was over 100 of them who met with our commissioner of health, were absolutely in support of getting children immunized,” says Rockland County Executive Ed Day.

An order from the Health Department remains in effect for more than 30 schools in New Square, Spring Valley and Monsey to keep home students who are unvaccinated or undervaccinated from the measles – until 21 days after the last case in the county.

“Unless you have a clear medically based exemption need, and I mean clear, you should be getting your shots. You should be getting immunized,” says Day.

Day says the county has given nearly 15,000 MMR vaccines since the measles outbreak began in October. However, cases continue to rise.

Officials say this is the longest measles outbreak and the most infections since the disease was eradicated nearly 20 years ago.

  1. Ohy Gevalt.
    Next will be Metzitsa Bpeh, then Shichta, Toaiva rights and education, abortions objections, then public schooling etc etc. We must fight government intrusion into religious beliefs and sensitivities.

  2. Just outsource all your religious freedoms to the Government…
    Great idea…
    just don’t keep on screaming about the new mandates on secular studies, after all, there is no religious freedom to be an ignoramus you know..
    Due to the recent releases of Dr. Gorge Zimmerman’s affidavit, the deposition of Stanley Plotkin, and the ICAN response, the HHS is desperate to take away all choice before people have the chance to become informed. We can thank great sites like this for perpetuating the hoax.

  3. Next is Mila. They already have their claws in religious education…

    When the gov’t controls you – they don’t only control the things you want them to control.

    Parents, not the Government are in charge of their children’s wellbeing. Religious or not.

  4. This is everyone’s problem, not only those who chose not to vaccinate their children.
    Why would I say so?
    Because this is in question of our rights. Until now, we knew if anything was under the category of religion, whether by some or all, the government butt out.

    Now If we do allow them do butt in here, who knows what will be next. They’re only targeting us!

    Raboisai we got to take acts against our rights!!!

    This message is intended for any individual who wants to continue having religious rights and freedom in America. This is not only a matter over vaccines!

  5. In case you wanted to know why the DOH and the CDC is so desperate for everyone to vaccinate and ban religious exemption.

    It is not because they care so much for your health but rather because there are FILTHY rich investors invested in the study of vaccines. Such as Hillary Clinton and Bill Gates. Bill Gates invested 200 Billion dollars in vaccines and now he is watching the revenue roll in.

    Furthermore why the CDC needs you to vaccinate YOUR children -They need a couple of million children, all ages, color, ethnicity and race to do a comprehensive study. So they are using your children as the guinea pig. To hear this from the mouth of a vaccine inventor himself you can google “Dr. Stanely Plotkin’s deposition under oath,” and see for himself. He isn’t even embarrassed to say that a clinical study was never done.
    Please be open minded don’t be fooled. Don’t say you chose to vaccinate because your doctor told you to do so. I know plenty of Doctors who butchered their patients- of course unintentionally- but yes it happens more and more these days. And you may find it interesting to note that a pediatrician doesn’t study more than 10 minutes of the topic of immunology and vaccines in college. They’re just told that vaccines are good and safe and you must administer them.

    Besides, did you know that the government has lost millions on millions of dollars in lawsuits of people that were vaccine injured. So, recently they passed a new law that vaccines are unable to be sued, reason being that they are “UNAVOIDABLY UNSAFE”.

    So all I beg of the klal is do whatever you want and your gut tells you, but first do honest research on your own. Don’t follow your doctor blindly. Let’s remember. these are OUR kids we are talking about and one day WE will have to give them answers!!

  6. So busy with making a Chilul Hashem, only religious Jews. Just so that you know
    1- there are NON -Jewish Private Schools out there that
    have 100% religious exempt. That means that no student in their school is vaccinated. You can check this out by googling “vaccination rates in school’s database.”

    2. There are public schools in the zip codes that the students were expelled from due to the outbreak, that have greater percentage of non vaxxed Children. They weren’t expelled. Don’t you see some sort of target here? That brings us to –

    3. The one behind this fiasco is Tom Frieden- who has a prestigious job in the CDC. Guess what!? He too was behind the Metzitz B’peh situation. He tried banning all Bris Milah! Is that a clear target?

    4. Since when does the DOH care so much about our health? Aren’t they allowing foods or the likes that are completely unhealthy to be sold on the shelves of stores? Why don’t they ban those kind of things that clearly lead to all kind of issues? Whether, Physically or mentally (ADHD…). So why are they desperate here for you to vaccinate-

    5. There are major filthy rich investors involved and supporting studies done on vaccines. Did you know, that any doctor that has patients completely in compliance, gets $400 per patient? Wake up! Don’t you smell the business deal- they’re gaining on you? Don’t you see why it is so important for them that you vaccinate and are completely up to date?

    6. Attached find a link to which you’ll see the government documents stating 1,570 vaccine injuries which occurred in NJ alone in the year of 2008. – After reading this do you still feel vaccine injuries are a one in a million chance. Do you need more proof than that?!
    7. Attached here you can read testimonials of real people in the Jewish community alone that agreed to vaccinate. They followed their doctors blindly- just like most of us- and learned the hard way. .

    8. You can watch moving videos on the website
    As long as you weren’t affected Baruch Hashem it is easy to talk, shout, negate and condemn. Hashem should help you should never be tested and your temimos/luck should work for you, but these parents who you are booing have to live with their disabled children or unfortunately the memory of their children day in and day out. So, next time before you condemn someone, maybe think do I know all the facts or am I just following the DOH, CDC, and doctors blindly. Because, just remember they are not God and there is a reason they all have good fatality insurance plans. Everyone can make mistakes and malpractices.
    And in conclusion if you really are interested in studying and researching the matter, below you might find some interesting articles and facts that were proven about vaccines.

    1. Attached here are 20 vaccine fact that doctors are required to give you before vaccinating. Why they don’t give it to you- is clear. But next time you vaccinate ask them to see it.
    2. Here you can read why a pediatrician stopped vaccinating her children with the flu shot.
    3. Attached here is a must read! 12 practicing doctors who use to consider themselves “vaccine bullies” and at some point, or another came to the realization that something is very off and stopped vaccinate or pushing vaccines on their patients.
    4. Attached here find an article printed by the Jewish Press in the year of 2013 by William Handler. He studied the topic of vaccines in depth.
    5. Google ingredients in vaccines. You may be shocked to find out some of the ingredients are pig fat, live aborted fetus cells and monkey tissues. That is without mentioning all the aluminum and metals…
    6. Let me tell you an interesting fact about the polio vaccine and the disease. The first polio outbreak was in 1945. That’s when the government sprayed DDT (pesticide) in our environment. The vaccine has been invented 10 years later in 1955, by that time the government realized the damage the DDT spray was doing and stopped spraying it. Causing the cases of polio to dramatically drop. In other words by the time the vaccine was created polio was already being eradicated other ways.

    7. Here watch how Dr. S. Plotkin says clearly in a deposition under oath how he was involved in creating numerous vaccines. In order to create them he used 76 aborted HEALTHY fetus cells. He says that he takes issue with religious beliefs and goes on to say I quote, “Vaccination is always under attack by religious zealots that believe that the will off God includes death and disease.” He admits to being an atheist. This is mind boggling. We are putting our health in the hands of these people . Then in part II Attorney asks, “Isn’t it also the reason careful preclinical studies using inert placebo should be used before licensure?” Plotkin replies, “It would be ideal to do so, but one would have to would have to be very large studies and covering different age groups and by and large those data come out much later after EXPERIENCE in the vaccine use in thousands or millions of people.” Then basically, you’re helping them with the study by using your children as a guinea pig. They also talk about the autism relation. part II .

    8. Attached here watch Dr. Bob Sears explain how “scary” the measles is -

    9. Here watch a study done by the CDC about the DTAP
    Just as a by the way most people that honestly researched this topic in depth either because they were unsure what to do, or just as a hobby began seeing some falsehood and stopped vaccinating.

    The main thing is that whatever you do you should have Syata Dshmaya and Hashem (not our doctors, CDC or DOH) should always keep Yidishe Kinderlach safe and sound.

  7. I just have one question, If vaccines are 100% safe and so beneficial, than why is the CDC so fearful from anyone who does research regarding the topic? History has shown us that anyone to instrumental or popular has broached the topic or attempted research was threatened with their life, or imprisonment, hence the Wakefield saga, or the Texas senator..

  8. can someone answer this question for me; If vaccines are 100% safe and so beneficial, than why is the CDC so fearful from anyone who does research regarding the topic? History has shown us that anyone to instrumental or popular has broached the topic or attempted research was threatened with their life, or imprisonment, hence the Wakefield saga, or the Texas senator..
