CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
As of Monday, April 14, there are 212 mumps cases reported in Franklin and Delaware counties. To date, 132 cases have been linked to The Ohio State University outbreak.
Columbus Public Health (CPH) and Franklin County Public Health continue to investigate a growing number of mumps cases in the community, and are encouraging individuals at highest risk of mumps to get vaccinated.
To protect yourself and your loved ones from mumps, make sure you have received two doses of the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine.
Anyone who has not received any doses of MMR and those who have received only one dose of MMR should be vaccinated. Additionally, people born before 1987 are likely to have received just one or no MMR doses and should also be vaccinated.
