It's amazing to me these long forgotten diseases are showing back up in the population again. Apparently there is a case of mumps in Charlotte in a 8 year old boy and it is fairly contageous. While it is inconvenient to children, it is a much more serious disease in any male past puberty as it can cause sterility.

So the question is, are you worried about this outbreak?

Aren't most Americans vaccinated for Mumps by their childhood MMR? Should I be worried if I have that vaccination?

The vaccination apparently looses some effectiveness over-time. Right now, in only one case, I wouldn't be too worried.
