    As of April 24, 2019, there have been 390 confirmed cases of measles in Brooklyn and Queens since October. Most of these cases have involved members of the Orthodox Jewish community. The initial person acquired measles on a visit to Israel, where a large outbreak of the disease is occurring.

    If you live, work or reside in Williamsburg, you are now required to get vaccinated for measles, unless you are immune or medically exempt.

    Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne disease that is transmitted from person to person. Too many New Yorkers still suffer from TB.

    The Health Department works with individuals, communities, and health care providers to ensure that everyone who has TB, or is at risk, gets proper treatment and care.
