Israeli Ministry of Health calls for emergency measles vaccination in Jerusalem


The Israeli Ministry of Health encourages all those who have abandoned their children against measles to bring their children to one of the many Tipat Halav children's health clinics, as their number has increased because of the potential for fatal illness in Jerusalem.

The health minister stated that in all parts of the hospital, such as intensive care and oncology, all children who did not receive measles vaccine would be exempted from the restrictions.

A particularly aggressive vaccination campaign was set up by Yaakov Litzman, Deputy Minister of Health of the Orthodox Church, in several hared neighboring countries in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh, where vaccination rates are particularly low – about 50 percent.

Tipat The poor centers of Ramot, Givat Shaul, Ramat Eshkol, Romema, Sanhedria and Ramat Shlomo in Jerusalem, as well as the centers of Beit Shemesh and Beitar Illit, will be open every day until late to try to prevent a disease that is described as highly contagious and extremely dangerous for small children, pregnant women, old and sick persons.

Additional mobile vaccination clinics were also sent to places where the highest concentration of infection was detected.

It has been reported that some 753 measles have been reported to the authorities in Jerusalem and more than 1300 cases have occurred since the beginning of 2018.

The Hadashot report states that 90 to 95 percent of the people who were infected with measles in the latest outbreak were not vaccinated.

A recent 18-month-old unvaccinated child died of bites in Jerusalem.

Arnon's child was also diagnosed with measles from the affluent southern Jerusalem area. Her day care, as well as her adjacent body, was closed, and parents called for their children to be vaccinated or intensified because they were exposed.

Also, two parents of a university who have never been vaccinated have been diagnosed with measles in Golan, Katzine.

About this disease, it was reported that 17 children from Willisburg's shallow districts and Borough Park in Brooklyn, N.Y., as well as several children on London's Stanford Island.
