Zika Virus Update from Dr. Shanik Pediatric affiliates Lakewood, NJ

Zika update as of October 19, 2016:
-Do not travel to Miami Dade county until Jan,15,2017
-All other areas of Florida are safe for travel for now

No woman of child bearing age and or their husband should travel to Miami Dade county, Florida until January 15, 2017 due to the possibility of contracting the Zika Virus. Also, anyone that travels to that area can bring the virus back and cause further spreading  to others locally. If someone is bitten by a mosquito with Zika Virus there and then is bitten by a mosquito here when they return, that mosquito here will now have the virus and will spread it to anyone else it bites. All other areas of Florida are safe for travel for now. This is all subject to change and will be updated as we learn more.
-Dr Shanik & Dr. Haimowitz


  1. not exactly true. the type of mosquito that carry zika doesn't live here, its cousins do, and the risk is that it'll jump. there are many zika cases in nyc, but none are locally transmitted, miami has locally transmitted cases.

  2. westgate is trying to build more buildings at the front, come tonight to zoning board to fight it...

    1. There was a war in China! What on earth does this have to do with the Zika virus?

  3. theres a virus much worse then zika in lakewood. lets see if you can figure it out for yourself. its R"L getting worse by the week with very little recovery ahead at the moment
