Mumps on Campus

April 20, 2016

Miami University has a confirmed case of Mumps on campus. Please take caution and seek medical attention if you suspect you have been exposed to Mumps. 

Mumps is an acute viral disease characterized by fever, swelling, and tenderness of one or more salivary glands. Mumps is not common in the United States due to robust vaccination programs. The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine protects against mumps, though follow-up doses are sometimes needed.
