Be Ready to Give MMR Boosters During a Mumps Outbreak

New CDC recommendations will raise questions about when to give a booster dose of a mumps vaccine (MMR, etc).

Almost 6,000 patients had mumps in the U.S. in 2017...possibly putting them at risk for hearing loss, meningitis, and encephalitis.

Risk seems higher in people living in close-knit settings such as college dorms...even if they had the 2-dose MMR series as a child. Immunity seems to be waning...plus some kids aren't getting immunized.
