The number of mumps cases in Washington state is on the rise, and several cases have been confirmed in the district (letter from Snohomish County Health District). Learn more about mumps and how you can best protect your family from this infectious disease on the Washington State Department of Health website.
If your child isn't current on their MMR immunizations, they may be excluded from school if there is a case of mumps at their school.
You may get the vaccine by contacting your healthcare provider. Or, call the Family Health Hotline at 1-800-322-2588 to find other vaccination locations. Thanks to those who helped make the March 11 mumps vaccination clinic possible and thanks to those who received an immunization.
