UofL Confirms Mumps

Last month, five cases of mumps were confirmed at the Indiana University Bloomington Campus . One case has been confirmed at the University of Louisville. Health officials at UofL said the student became infected while visiting the University of Kentucky. There have been three cases of mumps confirmed so far at the Lexington school and 27 cases throughout the state.

UofL does require that incoming students have the two doses of the MMR vaccine, but the vaccine is not 100% effective. The infected student was vaccinated. Any student at UofL that believes they are infected should contact campus health immediately.
