How Iowa Got the Mumps

“The largest outbreak of mumps to hit the U.S. in nearly 20 years has epidemiologists scratching their heads. After all, the illness, with its characteristic inflamed salivary glands and swollen throat, is relatively rare in North America, thanks to the widespread availability of a childhood vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella (the so-called MMR shot)…. What’s really puzzling about the Iowa outbreak is that most of the victims seem to have been fully vaccinated. Among those whose medical history has been confirmed, two-thirds got both of the required doses of MMR. … Fortunately, mumps doesn’t usually cause problems beyond swelling and misery that last about five days. Even so, doctors watch for signs of meningitis or, in young men, a testicular inflammation that could theoretically lead to infertility.” – time
