MidHudsonNews [dot] com is reporting Rockland County officials have declared the measles outbreak over. The last case was reported on September 24. County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert said two basic factors caused the outbreak. “We have found it to be a combination of those who refused to vaccinate...and ...the vaccine hesitant group [that] unscientifically staggers the vaccinations for their children and leaves them vulnerable to vaccine preventable disease.

Since the outbreak began in October 2018, there were 312 reported cases of measles in Rockland. Read the full story at MidHudsonNews [dot] com.
