Meanwhile in Jewish anti-vaxxer news.

https://reason.com/2019/06/10/brickbat- ... n-the-arm/
The Shulamith School for Girls, a Jewish school in Long Island, New York, has gone to court, challenging an effort by the state Education Department to force it to admit two unvaccinated girls into its classes and after school activities. The girls' parents have claimed a religious exemption from mandatory vaccines.
Got that?

Jewish anti-vaxxers are suing to get a religious exemption to get into a (decidedly Orthodox) Jewish school.

New York Couple Has Donated More Than $3 Million to Anti-Vaxx Movement: Report A New York couple is behind more than$3 million in contributions to the anti-vaccine movement, including at two forums that serve the city’s ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. Hedge-fund manager Bernard Selz and his wife, Lisa, started donating to organizations that question the safety of vaccines about seven years ago, The Washington Post reports. The Selz Foundation provides roughly three-fourths of the funding to the Informed Consent Action Network, a three-year-old charity that promotes parental choice in vaccine safety. “They should be allowed to have the measles if they want the measles,” their group's spokesperson told reporters. “It’s crazy that there’s this level of intensity around a trivial childhood illness.”

Measles outbreak in Dutch 'Bible Belt' village with low vaccination levels

Dutch health authorities said Tuesday they are dealing with a measles outbreak in a devout Protestant fishing village where vaccination rates are among the lowest in the country.

Nine children and one adult have been diagnosed with the disease in the village of Urk, part of the so-called "Bible Belt" in the northern Netherlands, the Flevoland province health service said.

The health service said it was "actively monitoring the situation" and examining whether it was necessary to vaccinate or administer antibodies to people who have been in contact with the infected patients.

"In 2013 and previously, the disease occurred more often on Urk. Many people on Urk have experienced this disease and that means that a natural defence has built up," it said.

Only 61.1 per cent of people are vaccinated against measles in Urk, one of the lowest rates in the Netherlands, where the national average is 92.9 percent, according to the National Public Health and Environment Institute.

Urk is regarded as one of the most devout of the villages in the "Bible Belt" of conservative Protestant communities running from Zeeland in the south of the Netherlands across the country to the north west.

Israeli Court Overrules Anti-Vaxx Parents

An Israeli court ordered the immediate vaccination of a child against tetanus, despite his parents’ objection.

This vaccination decision could set a precedent as the anti-vaccination movement gains ground in Israel, reported the Times of Israel on July 11, 2019.

This court decision is related to a child who was badly burned and was taken by his parents to a local clinic for preliminary treatment. A pediatrician recommended tetanus shot to ensure the child’s wound didn’t result in infection by the potentially deadly pathogen.

People often call tetanus “lockjaw” because one of the most common signs of this infection is tightening of the jaw muscles.

Tetanus infection can lead to serious health problems, including being unable to open the mouth and having trouble swallowing and breathing, says the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The parents, who are opposed to vaccinations, refused to do so. The pediatrician then decided to report the incident to the local health office, which turned to the attorney general’s office and the Welfare Ministry, which filed a suit with the Hadera Family Court, asking for an urgent order to force the parents to vaccinate the toddler.

Rockland measles count up to 280; health officials warn of exposure at Monsey store

The number of measles cases in Rockland has hit 280 in the recent outbreak, according to the Rockland County Health Department.

County officials do not provide the number of active cases, just the total that have occurred since the measles outbreak began last fall.

Because measles is highly contagious for up to two hours after an infected person has left an area, health officials are alerting the public about a possible measles exposure on Friday, July 5, at Auction Mart appliance store in Monsey. People who were at the store, located at 75 Route 59, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. that day were at a risk of exposure.
[…]
According to the federal Centers for Disease Control, there have been 1,109 cases of confirmed measles in the U.S. so far this year. Cases have been detected in 28 states. Brooklyn and Rockland have had the highest numbers, mostly found in the Orthodox Jewish community. Rockland's outbreak started near the Jewish high holidays with visitors from Israel, where the measles has been an ongoing health concern.
