  • Overview

    2016 held the highest number of reported mumps cases in more than a decade. The mumps vaccine program was initiated in 1967 which resulted in a 99% decrease in mumps cases in the United States. Many healthcare professionals have not cared for a patient with mumps and as a result may be unaware of the clinical signs and symptoms, transmission and complications. With the number of mumps cases increasing it is important for pharmacists to recognize cases of mumps promptly in order to refer patient for appropriate care and aid in the prevention of an outbreak.
