Officials Warn of Mumps Cases at University of Alabama

  • Mass vaccination clinics can be set up at campuses to try to contain a mumps outbreak

ADPH says vaccinations still helps limit the size, duration and spread of mumps. During that time, nearly 200,000 cases of children infected with mumps were reported annually. If you think you may have mumps, school officials ask that you talk with your medical provider or Chapman Student Health.

When compared to the other two diseases it keeps at bay, a single dose of the MMR vaccine is 97 percent effective against rubella and two doses of the vaccine are 97 percent effective at preventing measles. State and local health authorities are particularly interested in that additional shot as a preventive measure, Mona Marin told the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices.

What vaccination should I get?

"Multiple doses and adverse events will also be analyzed by the workgroup".

The team has taken steps to prevent the spread of the illness since the first player first showed symptoms two weeks ago.

In January alone, there were 495 reported mumps infections.

Last year, 19 cases of mumps were recorded in college campuses. As most college students have been vaccinated, the majority of cases have actually occurred in vaccinated people. Hence, the first dose of the MMR vaccine (against mumps, measles, and rubella) should be administered between the first 12 and 15 months of the child's life. Case counts are preliminary and subject to change.

"There's been a lot of illness this year", she said.

Mumps is a contagious viral infection that can cause painful swelling of the salivary glands, especially the parotid glands.

Symptoms of the mumps include fever, aches and swollen facial glands.

"After a couple of days, you start to feel the classic symptoms of pain and swelling along the jaw line", he said. Certain behaviors that result in exchanging saliva, such as kissing or sharing utensils, drinking after persons, and sharing lipstick or cigarettes, might increase spread of the virus.

In Vancouver, the Canucks said at least one player has the mumps, and others are showing symptoms. A blood test can also be performed to find out if a person has mumps.

In one recent outbreak that spanned from 2015 to 2016, people at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign started getting mumps despite the fact that a lot of them had received two recommended mumps vaccines.

According to health experts, the MMR vaccine is highly effective if a patient gets injected with two doses.

But once the vaccine became a national recommendation, the disease rates plunged.

A Toronto Public Health spokeswoman said 60 per cent of those cases were not immunized or under-immunized. Without vaccines, that number could have been as high as 700 or 800. In Arkansas, where about 2,800 people have gotten mumps since 2016, only 17 people experienced inflammation of the testicles.
