THE COMPARABLE FIGURE IN FRANCE IT WAS 8 600000, AND THE UNITED KINGDOM CAME IN 3RD AT 520 7000 OF CHILDREN NOT GETTING THEIR 1ST VACCINE ONE MUST ASK THE OBVIOUS QUESTION: HOW ON EARTH DID THIS HAPPEN? AS A STATE AND NATION WE MIGHT, WE NEED TO ADDRESS THIS NOW AND I’M TALKING TO SEE THE ACTION BEING TAKEN IN THE IS SET IT AND THE ASSEMBLY HERE IN NEW YORK STATE AROUND OUR COUNTRY OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST TAKE ACTION NATIONALLY TO INCREASE VACCINATION RATES EITHER EITHER THROUGH CONGRESSIONAL ACTION OR PRESIDENTIAL EXECUTIVE WATER THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE NOT TOMORROW, NOT KNOW WEEK.

ON THIS ISSUE, I, YOU KNOW AND 2014, WHEN I 1ST PICKED UP THIS LEGISLATION FROM ASSEMBLY MEMBER DANA WAITS WHO DESERVES A GREAT DEAL OF CREDIT FOR ALL OF HIS EFFORTS. I THERE WAS NOW BREAKING CALIFORNIA IN AROUND THE DISNEYLAND RESORT. WELL, THAT OUTBREAK WAS JUST MORE THAN 100 CASES OF MEASLES HERE. NOW, AND NEW YORK STATE, WE HAVE OVER 600 CASES OF MEASLES, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK IS THAT CALIFORNIA VERY QUICKLY MOVED TO ELIMINATE ALL NON- MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS. WE HAVE YET TO DO THAT HERE IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND THE CDC HAS JUST ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT THE OUTBREAK THAT’S OCCURRING NATIONWIDE IS THE LARGEST IN ALMOST A QUARTER- CENTURY. WE HAVE TO GET A GRIP ON THIS DISEASE, WE HAVE TO PUT SCIENCE AHEAD OF SCIENCE FICTION I’M SO PROUD OF MY COLLEAGUES IN THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY WHO ARE PUSHING BACK ON THE ANTI- VACCINATION WHO ARE PEDDLING THEIR JUNK SCIENCE, WHO ARE MISLEADING PARENTS WHO ARE ENDANGERING NOT ONLY THAT THEIR CHILDREN BUT OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN THE COURT CASES ARE CLEAR DATING BACK TO THE EARLY PART OF THE CENTURY, YOU HAVE. A 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO PRACTICE YOUR OWN RELIGION. BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO ENDANGER YOUR CHILDREN OR WORSE OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN IT’S TIME THAT WE END ALL NON- MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND AGAIN, THANK YOU TO MY COLLEAGUES FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. NEXT WE’LL HEAR FROM OUR LEAD SPONSOR IN THE ASSEMBLY ASSEMBLY WHEN DENOTES THANK YOU. I’M SOME WOMEN JEFFREY DANA WHAT’S I? REPRESENT THE NORTHWEST BRONX THE WORLD IS ROUNDS. IT’S NOT FLAT EVOLUTION IS A REALITY. IT’S NOT SOME CRAZY THEORY CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL, IT’S NOT FAKE NEWS AND VACCINATION SAVE LIVES. VACCINATIONS WORK THAT’S THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF ACCENT. ASIANS MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED. I WAS TALKING WITH A FRIEND OF MINE RECENTLY AND I DON’T KNOW THIS 3 YEARS BEFORE HE WAS BORN HIS OLDER SISTER DIED FROM THE MEASLES, MEASLES CAN KILL, MEASLES CAN CAUSE PERMANENT HARM. BLINDNESS, DEAFNESS BRAIN DAMAGE IT’S UNBELIEVABLE THAT IN THIS DAY AND AGE, IN THE 21ST CENTURY, THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO WAS SPREADING LIES WHO SPREADING MISINFORMATION ABOUT VACCINATIONS EVERYBODY SHOULD BE VACCINATED IF THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE VACCINATED GO WAS BELOW A CERTAIN RATE THAT’S WHEN DISEASES LIKE THE MEASLES CAN SPREAD AND WE HAVE TO STOP THIS WITH FACING AN EMERGENCY. NOW AND WE HAVE TO ADDRESS THE EMERGENCY IN MANY WAYS BUT ONE OF THE WAYS IS LEGISLATIVELY WE HAVE TO PASS THIS LEGISLATION TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ENTIRE STATE KNOWS OF THE IMPORTANCE OF VACCINATIONS. THAT THEY SHOULD GET THEIR CHILDREN VACCINATED. AND WE ALSO HAVE TO PASS THE LEGISLATION TO ELIMINATE ALL NON- MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS FOR VACCINATIONS THERE WAS NO REASON THAT ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO SEND THE CHILD TO SCHOOL SHOULD NOT HAVE THEIR CHILD ACCENTUATED NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DO IT TO PROTECT HER OWN CHILD, YOU SHOULD DO IT TO PROTECT OTHER CHILDREN, BECAUSE THERE ARE CHILDREN OUT THERE WHO CAN’T GET VACCINATED FOR MEDICAL REASONS, THOSE AT THE EXEMPTIONS THAT SHOULD REMAIN NOBODY ELSE’S LIFE SHOULD BE IN DANGER BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT IS NONSENSE. AND THE ONLY STUDY THAT EVER SHOWED THAT MEASLES THAT THE VACCINATION CAN CAUSE HARM HAS WAS THE BUNK OVER 20 YEARS AGO. YET THERE WERE PEOPLE OUT THERE FANATICALLY WHO STILL BELIEVE THIS WE HAVE TO PASS THIS LEGISLATION AND I JUST WANT TO THANK MY COLLEAGUES IN BOTH THE SENATE AND THE ASSEMBLY FOR SUPPORTING THIS THIS WILL SAVE LIVES WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MANY. BUT THIS WILL SAVE LIVES. THANK YOU. SO NEXT WE’LL HEAR FROM A SILLY WOMAN. ELLEN JAFFE HIS DENTAL, WHAT I THINK MY COLLEAGUES, AND FOR THEIR LEADERSHIP AND IT MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS IS SENSUAL, A PIECE OF LEGISLATION AND- AND ACTION I REPRESENT SO MANY OF OUR YOUTH IN ROCKLIN COUNTY AND THE NUMBERS OF THOSE WHO HAVE NOW HAVE THE MEASLES HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTING THEIR LIVES AS WELL AS SO MANY OTHERS IN THE COMMUNITY. AND I FEEL RESPONSIBLE, VERY RESPONSIBLE 2? TO MOVE FORWARD TO ASSURE THAT THAT WE ARE MOVING WITH, WE ARE RESPONDING WITH HEALTH INITIATIVES THAT ARE THE BEST INTERESTS OF THOSE OF EVERYONE IN NEW YORK, ESPECIALLY OUT CHILDREN AS A FORMER EDUCATOR, I CAN TELL YOU HOW A SENSUAL IT IS TO BE TO ASSURE THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE PROTECTED AND AND PROVIDED THE IMMUNIZATION TO ASSURE THAT THEY CAN MOVE FORWARD WITHOUT BEING NEGATIVELY IMPACTED BY THE BY WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO THEM ON THEIR IN THEIR HEALTH. IMMUNIZATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL IN PREVENTING THE OUTBREAK OF HARMFUL BACTERIA AND VIRUSES IN KEEPING OUR COMMUNITY HEALTHY AND SAFE WE HAVE TAKEN GREAT STRIDES AS EMOTION TO PROTECT AND IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES BY ELIMINATING AND CONTROLLING MANY LIFE THREATENING ILLNESSES. IMMUNIZATIONS HAS PLAYED A CRITICAL ROLE IN THIS PROCESS, AND THAT’S WHY I SUPPORT THIS LEGISLATION. MOVE AS FORWARD, WE FORWARD TO OUR CHILDREN SAFE TO ASSURE THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE SAFE AND A FAMILY SO SAFE WELL I BELIEVE IN PRAY PATEK DING THE 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREELY PRACTICE ONES RELIGION AND IN PERSONAL CHOICE AND INDIVIDUALS RIGHTS MUST BE BALANCED BY THE PUBLIC RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION ESPECIALLY THEIR OWN CHILDREN AND THE CHILDREN DAYS THEY SOCIALIZE WITH, AND EVEN PERHAPS SOME PREGNANT WOMEN THAT THEY SOCIALIZE WITH WHO MAY BE EXPOSED TO ME, SONGS AND OTHER ILLNESSES IT’S IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE TAKE THIS OUTBREAK SERIOUSLY AND GET VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO CAN’T HE VACCINATED FOR A VARIETY OF HEALTH REASONS INCLUDING IF YOU HAVE CANCER OR THEY AFFORD, YOU KNOW YOU DEPENDING ON OTHERS TO BE VACCINATED AS WELL. AND RATHER THAN BEING EXPOSED TO THOSE WHO, WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS THEY ARE ALSO VERY ENDANGERED PREGNANT WOMEN AND INFANTS YOU’RE OUT THERE AND YOU HAVE A VACCINATED, AND YOU MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO MEASLES, AND YOU’RE NOW EXPOSING INFANTS TO YOUNG, TO BE VACCINATED THAT AND CHANGERS THEM THEY DESERVE THE RIGHT TO BE OUT IN THE COMMUNITY WITHOUT COMPROMISING THEIR OWN HEALTH AND WELL BEING WHEN I THINK EVERYBODY FOR COMING TOGETHER TO RESPOND TO THIS, IT IS SO IMPORTANT IT IS ABOUT PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN IT IS ABOUT PROTECTING OUR FAMILIES WE CANNOT STEP BACK WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD THANK YOU.

WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH IMMUNITY WILL THE CHILD WILL HAVE AS A RESULT, BUT A 12 MONTHS OF AGE BETWEEN 12 AND 15 MONTHS AS A NORMAL 1ST DOSE OF MMR AT 12 MONTHS OF AGE WERE ASKING THE THE 1ST OFFICIAL MMR AND THEN WHAT WE’RE DOING IS NORMALLY WE WOULD HAVE THE 2ND ADMINISTERED BETWEEN 4 AND 6 YEARS OF AGE, OR BEFORE KINDERGARTEN, BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE ARE RECOMMENDING THAT OFFICIALS 2ND MMR TO BE GIVEN 28 DAYS AFTER THE 1ST SO THAT WOULD GIVE YOU KNOW, YOUR DAUGHTER, THE OPPORTUNITY BY 13 MONTHS OR SO TO REALLY HAVE TO FULL, AND THEN MARS ON BOARD WITH THAT EARLY VACCINE, WHICH IS AN EXCELLENT IDEA TO DO SO WE’RE HERE TODAY BECAUSE IT IS WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK, AS WELL AS PEDIATRIC IMMUNIZATION WEEK ROCKLIN COUNTY IS NOW ENTERING OUR 8TH MONTH OF THE MEASLES OUTBREAK, THE LONGEST CURRENT OUTBREAK IN THE NATION MY TEAM AT THE ROCKLIN COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HAS GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND IN OUR FIGHT TO CONTROL AND CONTAIN THIS OUTBREAK.

THAT IS WHY I AM HERE TODAY ADVOCATING FOR THE ELIMINATION OF RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS AS THE NEXT LOGICAL STEP IN PROTECTING THE PUBLIC HEALTH IN CALIFORNIA, DURING THE 2000 1415 SCHOOL YEAR, ONLY 90.4 PERCENT OF KINDERGARTNERS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS WERE FULLY IMMUNIZED. WELL, BELOW THE 95 PERCENT RATE THAT IS NEEDED FOR MEASLES TO FOR US TO HAVE WHAT WE CALL HEARD, IMMUNITY WILL COMMUNITY IMMUNITY SAME THING THAT’S THE PROTECTION FROM CONTAGIOUS DISEASE THAT IT INDIVIDUAL BENEFITS FROM AS A RESULT OF LIVING IN A COMMUNITY WHERE CRITICAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE VACCINATED, AND FOR ME, SO AS WE LOOK TO THE NUMBER TO BE 95 PERCENT THANKFULLY CALIFORNIA TOOK ACTION TO PREVENT AND PROTECT FOR VENTURE THE DISEASE AND PROTECT THE CHILDREN IN THEIR STATE.

THIS IS EXACTLY THE TYPE OF ACTION. THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN HERE. IT IS A NECESSARY STEP TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE PUBLIC AND TO PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THOSE WHO ARE UNABLE TO BE IMMUNIZED IN FENCED, THE AMINO COMPROMISED ON IMMUNIZED PREGNANT WOMEN AND THE SEVERELY ILL- I SUPPORT THE ENDING OF ALL NON- MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS HERE IN NEW YORK STATE AND I URGE OUR LAWMAKERS AND THE GOVERNOR TO DO THE SAME THANK YOU.

WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THIS STORY OF THE




Comments
  1. Stop bringing in people from the third world on checked for diseases that's where the measles are coming from they don't just come out of nowhere in what world does the state have the right to invoke forced vaccinations on people especially people that have religious freedoms in this country

  2. Only mistake our founding fathers made. Instead of freedom of religion we should have banned all religion in this country. Religion is one of the most evil things created by man right behind nuclear weapons

  3. ASK HANNAH POLING IF VACCINES ARE SAFE. these government officials don't have a clue and they're making decisions for all of us. you have to investigate vaccines for yourself because the media, government, big pharma won't tell you the risks. Measles is not ebola. as per usual, they are over reacting.

  4. VOTE EM THE FUCK OUT! THEY ARE FUCKIN NO GOOD AND IN BIG PHARMA POCKETS! FUCKIN TRAITORS.. GET THEM THE FUCK OUT… STONE THEM TO DEATH!

  5. GET A GOOD LOOK AT THESE EVIL PAWNS.. THEY NEED TO BE REMEMBERED… MAYBE WE SHOULD USE THEM AS PIN CUSHIONS… DIRTY MOTHER FUCKER LIARS

  6. About time, people don't have a right to risk their kid's health over their sick religious beliefs. Wake up, it's nearly 2020.

  7. Those exemptions are just for the average person who goes to public school there is no law that forces anyone to get vaccinated and there never will be because those elites need a loop hole for their kids who they don’t nor ever vaccinated they don’t send their kids to public schools so spare me herd immunity makes no sense if I am vaccinated then a non vaccinated person can’t give me a disease that’s why I got vaccinated but this is an agenda to control certain groups of people they bring up stats from other nations and I wonder why and only 4 people in Rockland County had active measles when this video was made these are the same people who kill black people and brown people with no impunity or remorse the same people who ran nycha into the ground the same people who allow a 12 year old to get an abortion and placed all the abortion clinics in the ghettos of NY meanwhile their kids in Larchmont and Scarsdale are treated different and not subjected to the crap that these so called reps from the north Bronx and Manhattan some poor areas mind you are peddling they want to control certain people not theirs so what’s really going on I don’t think they more they scream this herd crap the more people are gonna think about it and ask what I’m asking
