Statement regarding measles vaccination

In light of the measles outbreak affecting Jewish communities in New York and New Jersey, the board and Rabbi of Congregation Ohav Emeth would like to issue the following statement:

 

Measles is a highly contagious, life threatening disease. Measles is also preventable. According to the CDC, the recommended two doses of MMR vaccine is 97% effective against measles. Those who are immunocompromised or are too young to be vaccinated rely on herd immunity to be protected against this potentially deadly disease. It is our obligation to do everything we can to protect ourselves and safeguard our community against danger.

 

Congregation Ohav Emeth strongly urges all parents to vaccinate their children on the timetable recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC.

 

Adults born between 1957 and 1989 may not be immune to measles even if previously vaccinated. 
We encourage everyone in this age group to consult with their doctor regarding an immunity test (titer), or booster vaccine.

If your child is older than 6 months but less than 1 year old, we recommend that you consult with your pediatrician to see if your child should receive their first dose of the vaccine early.

   
The safety of our congregants is paramount. For this reason we request that individuals who do not have a registered medical exemption and have not been vaccinated against measles refrain from entering the building or participating in shul functions.


Please see the attached resource for a more information on the importance of vaccination.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
