There's a state of emergency in New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio is practically begging residents to get their vaccinations after 285 confirmed cases of measles since the fall.
Why it matters: The world's financial capital has declared a public health emergency in the face of a virus that has a safe and effective vaccine.
