New York City accounted for about two-thirds of all USA measles cases reported last week. A state judge sided with the parents and issued a preliminary injunction against the emergency order.
The New York Times says the City Council bill, which would take effect a year after it's signed into law, has the support of Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration.
But in the days that followed, parents from a private Waldorf school filed a lawsuit that called the ban "arbitrary" and "capricious".
But city health officials say they have they have struck the right balance with the unusual order, and they hope a mixture of outreach and prodding will overcome resistance to vaccines in a slice of the predominantly Orthodox Jewish community hardest hit by the disease.
Under the new rules, anyone who has not received the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine or does not have evidence of immunity risks a fine of $1,000. The new position states "the use of such vaccines does not signify some sort of cooperation in voluntary abortion" and that parents have a "moral obligation to guarantee the vaccination coverage necessary for the safety of others". The ultra-Orthodox communities of the county are the most affected by the measles outbreak according to the New York Times.

Williamsburg, Brooklyn is in the midst of the country's largest measles outbreak-but residents are still split on what should be done.
Health officials in NY are concerned - and furious - over the spread of the parties in the Big Apple borough of Brooklyn.
Most of the NY cases involved unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated individuals, according to de Blasio's office. Yet since then, there have been years when the number of cases has surged, notably in 2014, when 667 were reported - the highest annual total since the turn of the century. Those who are uninsured will pay what they can afford, de Blasio said, and those who cannot afford the vaccination will receive it free.
"It's a war zone", said the doctor who said he had seen over a hundred patients who hadn't been vaccinated but asked for anonymity for fear of jeopardizing his practices. In 2019, there is no reason that your child should not be protected when we have at our fingertips safe and effective vaccines to prevent deadly diseases. "It's a very small minority", said Dr. Jay Begun, a pediatrician in Williamsburg. "The delay it is what's fueling this outbreak". "I don't think they should be getting fined, I think another penalty should be given", said Charlette Hamlin, 36, who is in favor of vaccinations for all.
Westchester County announced on Wednesday that eight local children, six of whom are siblings, and all are from Northern Westchester, have been confirmed to have measles. Miriam's daughter doesn't want to vaccinate her children, she said, because she is anxious about the vaccines affecting brain function.
