"Childhood vaccination is a key intervention against the spread of dangerous diseases. Unlike many other public health interventions, failure to vaccinate a child can affect far more people than those opting out. When vaccination rates fall below a certain level, the potential for the loss of herd immunity threatens a broader swath of the population, including those who are ineligible for vaccination because of age or medical contraindication.[ 109] While vaccination rates generally remain high nationally,[ 110] concentrated populations of unvaccinated children present significant risks.[ 111] Among numerous examples: a 1996 measles outbreak in Utah linked to a cluster of unvaccinated children,[ 112] a 2010 pertussis outbreak in California linked to a population with low vaccination rates,[ 113] and a 2011 measles outbreak in Minnesota traced in part to a cluster of unvaccinated children and a group of children too young to be vaccinated for the disease.[ 114] Examples of the potential consequences of a widespread reduction in vaccination rates are even more striking, such as the massive spike in pertussis cases in Japan following a significant drop in vaccination rates in the 1970s.[ 115]"

So if Moskowitz has millions to spread her misinformation regarding De Blasio's decisions regarding charter school colocation, she can certainly pony up the money for a building instead of taking public school space and resources rent free.
