The country is under a state of emergency as it tries to contain the epidemic, which has so far killed at least 16 people.
Under the state of emergency, a compulsory vaccination programme is underway.
In a statement, the government said that under the emergency declaration it is illegal to discourage or prevent people from getting immunised.
