Expect Some Patients to Get MMR Boosters During a Mumps Outbreak

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

Now CDC recommends a booster dose of a mumps vaccine such as MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) in an outbreak.

But boosters will only be for certain patients at increased risk...based on who your health department identifies as target groups.
