Have you been vaccinated against mumps?
It is recommended that everyone has two MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella) vaccinations. If you are aware you have not had two MMR doses and you are a University Health Service patient then please contact the University Health Service reception.
You may also be able to have this vaccination at your home GP over the summer.
Mumps symptoms include swelling of salivary glands. Mumps is spread through salivary droplets and infected persons are infectious from 2 days before swelling and up to 5 days afterwards.
