Ohio Mumps Outbreak Apparently Spreading Beyond College Campus

By the Editors

An outbreak of mumps at Ohio State University has apparently spread beyond the campus into Columbus, according to a Reuters report.

Of the 63 known cases, 45 are affiliated with the university, but 18 have no known connection. The county, which includes Ohio State, normally would see one case a year.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the county health department is advising all community members who have not received a measles, mumps, and rubella shot — or who have only received one dose — get fully vaccinated.
