New York City cited 84 people for refusing to vaccinate themselves or their children as the city's ongoing measles outbreak worsens, the city's health department said Tuesday.
The city's health department last month declared a state of emergency and ordered residents of Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to get the measles, mumps and rubella, or MMR, vaccine or face a $1,000 fine. The city hasn't fined anyone yet, but it's summoned 84 people to appear in court for failing to comply with the order. They face up to $2,000 in fines if they fail to show, the city said.
Since the outbreak started, in October, city officials have confirmed 466 cases, the majority of which have occurred in Williamsburg. There have been 34 hospitalizations and nine admissions to the intensive care unit due to complications of the measles.

"This is the time to act," Dr. Demetre Daskalakis, the health department's deputy commissioner for disease control, said in a statement. "Measles is a highly contagious disease."
The ongoing outbreak in New York City is driving up the total number of measles cases nationwide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday said the 2019 total is now at 764 — the highest in 25 years. It's also a record number of cases since the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000.
Of the 60 new cases across the U.S. confirmed last week, 52 were reported in New York, where two large outbreaks are occurring.
Measles is highly contagious, yet preventable with the MMR vaccine. More parents are refusing to vaccinate their children, sometimes based on false information that vaccines cause autism. Measles spreads quickly and easily among people who aren't immunized.
