Want to know what you can do to protect yourself
against sicknesses like the mumps?
Remember these 4 tips:
1) Get vaccinated
2) Wash your hands
3) Stay home if you're sick
4) Cover your cough.
Are you up-to-date on your MMR vaccine, an
immunization that helps protect against measles,
mumps and rubella? If not, talk to your health
care provider and get vaccinated.
Think you may already be sick with the mumps?
Contact your health care provider, and be sure
to stay home, cover your cough and wash your
hands to help prevent spreading the infection.

Up-to-date with MMR - What does that mean?
Children receive the first dose of MMR (the
mumps-containing vaccine) at 12-15 months and
the second dose at 4-6 years.
People born between 1958 and 1985 may have
only received one dose. Check with your
healthcare provider to get your record.
