Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins on Wednesday said she expects the state Senate will take action “soon” on a bill that would end religious exemptions for vaccinations.

The bill is being pushed amid a measles outbreak in Rockland County and Brooklyn. Nationally, more than 800 confirmed cases of measles have been reported, the majority of which are in New York state.

“We know this is a very serious crisis and we are — I believe we’ll certainly be doing something soon,” she said at an unrelated press conference.

The bill is yet to be approved in the state Assembly as well as some lawmakers have expressed unease with the ending of religious exemptions. Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes declined to say when a vote might be held on the bill.

A rally of anti-vaccine and vaccine skeptical advocates was held at the Capitol on Tuesday, which featured Robert F. Kennedy.

Public health officials have stressed the need to vaccinate healthy people in order to create herd immunity.
